kOps - Kubernetes Operations

The easiest way to get a production grade Kubernetes cluster up and running.

What is kOps?

We like to think of it as kubectl for clusters.

kops will not only help you create, destroy, upgrade and maintain production-grade, highly available, Kubernetes cluster, but it will also provision the necessary cloud infrastructure.

AWS (Amazon Web Services) and GCE (Google Cloud Platform) are currently officially supported, with DigitalOcean, Hetzner and OpenStack in beta support, and Azure in alpha.
