Share your thoughts and comments, so that we can improve them together and bring progress to the world of IT!
The core features
Orchestrating Infrastructure with Cluster API gives you the ability to easiliy create, update, and operate production-ready Kubernetes clusters.
Multi-node control planes with stacked or external etcd. Fully customizeable.
Cloud & Baremetal Nodes
Can be used with standard and dedicated Hetzner Cloud servers, as well as with baremetal servers from Hetzner Robot.
Choice of Linux Distribution
Free choice of Linux operating system. For full coverage cloud-init is recommended, but other OS, like Talos, are also working.
Cluster API is able to remediate nodes, including control-planes. No worries any more about unhealthy nodes!
Native Kubernetes manifests and API. Cluster API controllers runs on Kubernetes
Complete Day 2
CAPI updates Kubernetes versions, operating system on nodes, and any changing configuration.
The autoscaler scales Kubernetes Cluster up or down, depending on your needs. This can reduce a lot of manual work.
Made from developers for developers, so the latest Kubernetes version is always a must-have.
Kubeadm or Talos
By default, kubeadm is used under the hood. Everything you can configure in kubeadm you could also do in CAPI. Talos is also supported.
