Kubernetes Core Bundle


This is a minimal Kubernetes cluster composed of the following components and features:

  • Kubernetes (automated deployment, operations, and scaling)
    • Kubernetes cluster with one control-plane node and one worker node.
    • TLS used for communication between nodes for security.
    • CNI plugin (Calico)
    • Optional Ingress Controller (on worker)
    • Optional Metrics and Dashboard addons (on control-plane)
  • EasyRSA
    • Performs the role of a certificate authority serving self-signed certificates to the requesting units of the cluster.
  • Etcd (distributed key value store)
    • One node for basic functionality.

This bundle is suitable for development and testing purposes. For a more robust, scaled-out cluster, deploy the charmed-kubernetes bundle.

For detailed installation and usage, please see the Charmed Kubernetes documentation.


Calico is used as a CNI plugin to manage networking for the Kubernetes cluster.
