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.

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.
