StackIQ released an open source Stacki Pallet for Kubernetes in January 2017. Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

In this webinar, Joe Kaiser, Director of Open Source Engineering at StackIQ, will demo how to build a Kubernetes cluster using the Stacki Pallet for Kubernetes. The Pallet runs on the Stacki framework giving you a functioning Kubernetes cluster with a kubernetes-dashboard deployment if you request it.

If you’d like to try it out before the webinar, view the documentation for the Pallet on the GitHub repo and download the following ISOs (MD5 checksum & MD5 checksum) to your frontend:

Stacki, as it is initially installed, will quickly install as many machines as you need with intelligent default settings. But it is rare that your environment requires default settings. You may have complex network topologies, policies about what you can and can’t do, VLANs, more subnets than you want, IPMI, bonded interfaces, and virtual machines.

In this webinar, Joe will show you how to do bonding, VLANS, talk to your IPMI, add multiple networks, and PXE boot off of those, and deal with the potential muddle DNS can be. He’ll also cover what you need to do to massage your backend networks into place – most of which can be done without a reinstall.
