Welcome to Kubernetes Korner

Welcome to Kubernetes Korner

We've created an open community forum where we can discuss all things Kubernetes, Data Management, Kasten K10 by Veeam, and all DevOps topics in one place where anyone can contribute, learn, or share.

Working with Kubernetes and Terraform Part 3: Installing Kasten using Terraform

In this three-part series, I will explain how to use Kubernetes (K8s) and Terraform (TF) together to set up a Kubernetes cluster, manage applications and install Kasten. We will of course keep data management best practices in mind for every step. Installing Kasten in the cluster is also a great example of how Terraform can be used when managing cloud resources outside the cluster. Read more →
