Single node Kubernetes done right
Zero-ops k8s on just about any Linux box.
It’s not elastic, but it is on rails. Use it for offline development, prototyping, testing, or use it on a VM as a small, cheap, reliable k8s for CI/CD. Makes a great k8s for appliances - develop your IoT apps for k8s and deploy them to MicroK8s on your boxes.
Reliable, fast, small, upstream. Tasty!
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.
On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or 18.04 LTS, install the MicroK8s snap:
To install on other distributions use the snapcraft docs.
For the current published versions
It is possible to select a specific version like 1.11 and get only stable or RC updates to that version. By default you will get the current major version (e.g. 1.12) 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
--help for details.
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. At the time of writing:

snap refresh --channel=latest/beta microk8s or
snap refresh --channel=1.11/stable microk8s and get the expected result.
