Install K8ssandra on GKE

Pointer to K8ssandra install on Google GKE topic.

Google Kubernetes Engine or “GKE” is a managed Kubernetes environment on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). GKE is a fully managed experience; it handles the management/upgrading of the Kubernetes cluster master as well as autoscaling of “nodes” through “node pool” templates.

Through GKE, your Kubernetes deployments will have first-class support for GCP IAM identities, built-in configuration of high-availability and secured clusters, as well as native access to GCP’s networking features such as load balancers.

Available topics

  • For details about the initial K8ssandra (1.4.x) implementation, see this Google GKE install topic.

  • For details about the new K8ssandra Operator, see this local install topic. It showcases the K8ssandra Operator support for single- and multi-cluster environments. Examples use local kind Kubernetes along with helper scripts invoked by make commands, as well as helm and kustomize options. Topics covering installs that use K8ssandra Operator for Google GKE, Amazon EKS, and Azure AKS may be added at a later time.
