Kubernetes (k8s) is an open source container cluster manager originally designed by Google. K8s works with Docker containers and coordinates a cluster of hosts running Docker. K8s provides a platform for deploying, scaling, and operations of containers across clusters of hosts.
Kubernetes is Greek for Helmsman or Pilot.
Distelli offers advanced features for k8s cluster management, including:
- Learning of existing clusters dynamically and manually.
- Automated builds and deploy (CI/CD).
- Creating new clusters.
- Monitoring the cluster.
- Deploying containers to the cluster.
- Creating services.
- Inspecting logs.
- and much more...
Using Distelli with k8s clusters is documented in the Distelli K8S Dashboard documentation section.
There are also several k8s related tutorials available.
K8s uses a command line tool called kubectl. It is available here.
The k8s CLI requires a kubeconfig file with information on how to connect to a cluster. This file can be downloaded from Distelli.
