Canonical Kubernetes

The Canonical K8s machine charm is a performant, lightweight, secure and opinionated distribution of Kubernetes which includes all the components needed to create and manage a scalable cluster suitable for all use cases.

This charm automates the deployment and operation of a kubernetes control-plane node on any machine-type cloud.

As a result, it makes managing cloud operations for Kubernetes easier than ever before: to deploy, run juju deploy k8s.

Application constraints

It is best to apply constraints to the machines hosting the kubernetes control-plane so that the control plane isn’t under-resourced. We recommend the following:

  • 2 CPU cores
  • 16G of memory
  • 40G of root disk

These minimum constraints can be applied when deploying the charm:

juju deploy k8s --constraints='cores=2 mem=16G root-disk=40G'

:information_source: This charm is more fully documented as part of the Canonical Kubernetes documentation, where you will find explanations, how-tos and other reference material. If you are new to Canonical Kubernetes, you might like to try this tutorial.

Canonical K8s is a member of the Ubuntu family. It’s an open source project which warmly welcomes community contributions, suggestions, fixes and constructive feedback.
