I am trying to install Kubernetes from scratch, using AWS EC2. Does anyone know of a good link or reference point? Also, any suggestions on what Linux Distro I should use for my EC2? Or doesn’t make a difference since Kubernetes will be inside? What bistro is Kueernetes 1.11 is on?
Thanks in advance.
We use Kops - https://github.com/kubernetes/kops which has been pretty stable and designed for AWS.
I use kubespray (quick start: https://github.com/mateothegreat/k8-byexamples-kubespray) for all of my Kubernetes AWS workloads.
I also use ansible for almost everything. Here are some playbooks to get you started from zero to k8 ready: https://github.com/mateothegreat/ansible-aws-kubernetes.
Why are you doing it?
