Installing Kubernetes

For this tutorial, you must have a Kubernetes cluster available. For testing and evaluation purpose, you can start with the Kubernetes minikube.

  1. Download and install Kubernetes minikube, if necessary. If you are using minikube for this tutorial, then use the following steps to set up a test environment.

    • Verify that virtualization is supported.
    • Install kubectl.
    • Install a virtualization Hypervisor.
    • Install minikube.
  2. Start the minikube service by running the following command:

    minikube start

  3. Confirm the installation by running the following command:

    minikube status

    The following output is displayed only when your cluster is installed and running.

    host: Running
    kubelet: Running
