The goal of this interactive scenario is to deploy a local development Kubernetes cluster using minikube

The online terminal is a pre-configured Linux environment that can be used as a regular console (you can type commands). Clicking on the blocks of code followed by the ENTER sign will execute that command in the terminal.

During this tutorial we created a Kubernetes cluster using minikube, and checked the cluster version and available Nodes. In the next scenario we will deploy our first application.

Don’t stop now! The next scenario will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

Module 1

Step 1 of 3

Cluster up and running

We already installed minikube for you. Check that it is properly installed, by running the minikube version command:

minikube version

OK, we can see that minikube is in place.

Start the cluster, by running the minikube start command:

minikube start

Great! You now have a running Kubernetes cluster in your online terminal. Minikube started a virtual machine for you, and a Kubernetes cluster is now running in that VM.
