Google's Kubernetes Engine (GKE) is a fully managed Kubernetes service provided by Google Cloud.
Users can use the controller to provision and operate GKE clusters on GCP.
GKE Lifecycle Management¶
Users can leverage the controller's native integration with GCP to
- Provision and manage the lifecycle of GKE Clusters in all supported GCP regions.
- Create and maintain version controlled, declarative cluster specifications in their Git Repositories
- Use declarative, cluster specifications to provision GKE clusters in minutes with a high level of automation.
Refer Provisioning and the RCTL CLI on how to provision a GKE Cluster
Users that use an alternate approach for GKE cluster provisioning such as Terraform etc can import these clusters for visibility, monitoring and workload operations.
We have quick start exercise to explore the platform's capabilities for "Lifecycle Management" of GKE Cluster.
