Oracle launched (May 2018) its Managed Kubernetes Cloud Service (OKE – Oracle Kubernetes Engine) – see for example this announcement. Yesterday I got my self a new free cloud trial on the Oracle Public Cloud (https://cloud.oracle.com/tryit). Subsequently, I created a Kubernetes cluster and deployed my first pod on that cluster. In this article, I will describe the steps that I went through:
- create Oracle Cloud Trial account
- configure OCI (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure) tenancy
- create service policy
- create OCI user
- create virtual network
- create security lists
- create compute instance
- configure Kubernetes Cluster & Node Pool; have the cluster deployed
- install and configure OCI CLI tool
- generate kubeconfig file
- connect to Kubernetes cluster using Kubectl – inspect and roll out a Pod
The resources section at the end of this article references all relevant documentation.
Configure OCI (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure) tenancy
Within your tenancy, a suitably pre-configured compartment must already exist in each region in which you want to create and deploy clusters. The compartment must contain the necessary network resources already configured (VCN, subnets, internet gateway, route table, security lists). For example, to create a highly available cluster spanning three availability domains, the VCN must include three subnets in different availability domains for node pools, and two further subnets for load balancers.
