Welcome to the Next Steps for your Kubernetes cluster.
This guide is for Kubernetes Quick Start admins and users. This guide assumes you have deployed the Kubernetes Quick Start, either by walking through Amazon’s Quick Start PDF, which uses Amazon’s CloudFormation console, or Heptio’s walkthrough, which uses the AWS CLI to deploy Kubernetes from the command line.
Now that you have your Kubernetes stack on Amazon, we recommend setting up WordPress with Helm as a demo application to explore your new cluster.
This stack is appropriate for proof of concept (PoC), experimentation, development, and small internal-facing projects. Consider this a test drive.
This stack does not currently support upgrades and must be rebuilt for new versions.
If you’re looking for a more mature build today, please check out kops.
If you’ve completed the Kubernetes Quick Start on AWS, we recommend that you try these next steps:
Heptio has collected some links to help you explore your Kubernetes cluster:
This CloudFormation template (download) (launch) creates two stacks: one that builds a wrapper virtual private cloud (VPC), and one that deploys the Kubernetes cluster into it. For advanced AWS users, you can deploy just the Kubernetes stack into your existing AWS architecture. This architecture list is for the template that creates a new VPC for your Kubernetes cluster.
The templates are built for CloudFormation.
