    That's great! Did you use a Kubernetes distribution that's provided by the OS, like MicroK8s ( https://microk8s.io/ )? Or perhaps one of the lightweight ones, like K3s ( https://k3s.io/ ) or k0s ( https://k0sproject.io/ )? Maybe a turnkey one, like RKE ( https://rancher.com/products/rke/ )? Or did you use something like kubespray ( https://kubespray.io/#/ ) to create a cluster in a semi automated fashion?...
