This is a multi-part, self paced exercise to explore the platform's capabilities for "Lifecycle Management" of Google GKE Clusters.
What Will You Do by Part¶
|Part||What will you do?|
|1||Configure and Provision a GKE Cluster using RCTL or the web console, view the cluster through the integrated monitoring and dashboards, securely access the cluster's API server using zero trust kubectl|
|2||Scale the cluster by updating the number of nodes in an existing node pool, adding and removing node pools|
|3||Upgrade the Kubernetes version of the GKE cluster's control plane and nodes|
|4||Deprovision the cluster and remove the underlying infrastructure|
- You have access to an Google Cloud account
- You have sufficient privileges to create GCP credentials to allow the controller to provision resources on your behalf as part of the GKE cluster lifecycle process.
- You have downloaded the RCTL CLI
- You have downloaded and initialized the RCTL CLI
The instructions describe the process using a combination of the RCTL CLI and the web console. The same steps can be performed using the REST APIs or a Terraform provider for automation.
