Single node Kubernetes done right
The smallest, fastest, fully-conformant Kubernetes that tracks upstream releases and makes clustering trivial. MicroK8s is great for offline development, prototyping, and testing. Use it on a VM as a small, cheap, reliable k8s for CI/CD. The best kubernetes for appliances. Develop IoT apps for k8s and deploy them to MicroK8s on your Linux boxes.
Reliable, fast, small, upstream.
Get a full Kubernetes system running in under 60 seconds.
Runs safely on your laptop with state of the art isolation.
CNCF binaries delivered to your laptop, with updates and upgrades.
Includes a docker registry so you can make containers, push them, and deploy them all on your laptop.
Cool things you probably want to try on a small, standard K8s are all built-in. Just enable them and go.
Get the daily build if you want it, or betas and milestones, or just stable point releases.
When a new major version comes out, upgrade with a single command (or automatically).
Give MicroK8s a GPGPU and your docker containers can get all nice and CUDA.
Use MicroK8s in your CI/CD pipelines and get on with your day without headaches.
snap info microK8s shows the current published k8s versions. It is possible to select a specific version like 1.6 and get only stable or RC updates to that version. By default, you will get the current major version with upgrades when new major versions are published.
Start and stop kubernetes
Bring k8s up and take it down as needed to preserve battery life when you don’t need it running:
Turn on standard services
Enable and disable particular standard add-on services using the
microk8s.disable commands. See the
microk8s.enable --help for a list of the available services built-in to MicroK8s.
Try a different version, or a beta or a daily build
Snaps are published in channels which are made up of a track (or major version), and an expected level of stability. Try
snap info microk8s to see what versions are currently published. For example:
channels: stable: v1.13.0 (340) 204MB classic candidate: v1.13.1 (354) 229MB classic beta: v1.13.1 (354) 229MB classic edge: v1.13.1 (354) 229MB classic 1.13/stable: v1.13.0 (340) 204MB classic 1.13/candidate: v1.13.1 (356) 229MB classic ... 1.10/beta: v1.10.11 (321) 175MB classic 1.10/edge: v1.10.12 (364) 200MB classic
snap refresh --channel=latest/beta microk8s or
snap refresh --channel=1.11/stable microk8s and get the expected result.
