There are multiple guides on running Kubernetes with CoreOS.
These guides are maintained by CoreOS and deploy Kubernetes the “CoreOS Way” with full TLS, the DNS add-on, and more. These guides pass Kubernetes conformance testing and we encourage you to test this yourself.
Guide and CLI tool for setting up a multi-node cluster on AWS. CloudFormation is used to set up a master and multiple workers in auto-scaling groups.
Guide and HTTP/API service for PXE booting and provisioning a multi-node cluster on bare metal. Ignition is used to provision a master and multiple workers on the first boot from disk.
Guide to setting up a multi-node cluster on Vagrant. The deployer can independently configure the number of etcd nodes, master nodes, and worker nodes to bring up a fully HA control plane.
The quickest way to set up a Kubernetes development environment locally.
