Simple Kubernetes install

Those that are interested in Trident and just getting started with Kubernetes frequently ask us for a simple way to install Kubernetes to try it out.

We can’t help but recommend the NetApp Kubernetes Service, which makes it really easy to deploy and manage a production Kubernetes cluster in Azure, GCP, AWS, or even on-premises with NetApp HCI or VMware.

Another option is to follow the kubeadm install guide provided by Kubernetes. The Kubernetes cluster these instructions build should never be used in production. Follow production deployment guides provided by your distribution for that.

If this is the first time you’re using Kubernetes, we highly recommend a walkthrough to familiarize yourself with the concepts and tools.
