kops - Kubernetes Operations
The easiest way to get a production grade Kubernetes cluster up and running.
2020-05-06 etcd-manager Certificate Expiration Advisory
kops versions released today contain a critical fix to etcd-manager: 1 year after creation (or first adopting etcd-manager), clusters will stop responding due to expiration of a TLS certificate. Upgrading kops to 1.15.3, 1.16.2, 1.17.0-beta.2, or 1.18.0-alpha.3 is highly recommended. Please see the advisory for the full details.
What is kops?
We like to think of it as
kubectl for clusters.
kops helps you create, destroy, upgrade and maintain production-grade, highly available, Kubernetes clusters from the command line. AWS (Amazon Web Services) is currently officially supported, with GCE and OpenStack in beta support, and VMware vSphere in alpha, and other platforms planned.
Can I see it in action?
Installing and launching a Kubernetes cluster hosted on AWS, GCE, DigitalOcean or OpenStack

Getting Involved and Contributing
Kops maintainers set aside one hour every other week for public office hours. This time is used to gather with community members interested in kops. This session is open to both developers and users.
We do maintain an agenda and stick to it as much as possible. If you want to hold the floor, put your item in this doc. Bullet/note form is fine. Even if your topic gets in late, we do our best to cover it.
For more information about the office hours and how to join, see Office Hours
