Kubernetes, or k8s for short, is an open source platform pioneered by Google, which started as a simple container orchestration tool but has grown into a cloud native platform.

There are a number of Kubernetes-specific charms available in Charmhub. MicroK8s is the smallest, fastest, single-package Kubernetes for developers, IoT and edge.

Another option is Charmed Kubernetes, a scaled-out Kubernetes cluster composed of the following components and features:

  • Deep integration for public and private clouds, or bare metal
  • Uses standard upstream Kubernetes
  • Multiple Kubernetes master and worker nodes
  • Extensive CNI options
  • Intra-node TLS by default
  • GPGPU support for high performance AI/ML
  • Managed option available

If you are looking for a management solution, have a look at the Portainer charm, consisting of a single container that can run on any cluster. Portainer allows you to manage all your orchestrator resources (containers, images, volumes, networks and more) through a simple graphical interface.
