The Nectar Container Orchestration Engine (COE) service provides support for provisioning Kubernetes clusters as a service on the Nectar Research Cloud. This allows a user to spin up a container cluster (Kubernetes) on Nectar Research Cloud.
Currently only Kubernetes as a Container Orchestration Engine is supported. For a tutorial on how to create a Kubernetes cluster, please visit the Kubernetes Tutorial.
To spin up a Kubernetes container cluster, you need quotas for the following resources:
- Clusters - 1 per cluster that you want to run
- Floating IPs - 2 per cluster
- Load balancers - 3 per cluster
- Networks - 1 per cluster
- Instances - at least 2 per cluster
There is a step by step tutorial available to teach you how to create a Cluster. Please visit the Nectar Tutorial Website.
