Kublr Demo/Installer Release 1.14.0 (2019-11-01)

Kublr Quick Start

sudo docker run --name kublr -d --restart=unless-stopped -p 9080:9080 kublr/kublr:1.14.0

The Kublr Demo/Installer is a lightweight, dockerized, limited-functionality Kublr Platform which can be used to:

  • Test setup and management of a standalone Kubernetes cluster
  • Setup a full-featured Kublr Platform

The Kublr Demo/Installer stores all of the data, about the created clusters, inside the Docker container. If you delete the Docker container you will lose all data about the created clusters and the Kublr platforms. However, you will not lose the cluster and platform itself. We recommend using the Kublr Demo/Installer to verify if a Kubernetes cluster can be created in your environment and to experiment with it. To manage your clusters and benefit from all features, create a full-featured, permanent Kublr Platform in any cloud or on-premise.

Overview

This major release brings support for multiple-instance groups. It gives you an option to create groups of nodes with different OS, VM sizes and labels. Now you can better plan your infrastructure (for instance create one group of VMs for front-end and another one for a backend or a database) and then implement the infrastructure in just a one click using Kublr UI. In addition, the feature gives you the ability to change\modify\delete\add\clone an instance group after a cluster creation procedure. So infrastructure can follow for your requirement and changes. We added support of Kubernetes 1.14.8, fixed many known issues, and made several improvements. One of the small, but very useful, improvement is the web console with embedded kubectl and Helm. In version 1.14 you no longer needed to download a Kubernetes config file. Just click on the “Open Web Console” link and you will have access to Kubernetes API via kubectl in your browser.
