Installing on Kubernetes Clusters

Kubernetes, also known as “k8s” or “kube,” is a container orchestration platform for scheduling and automating the deployment, management, and scaling of containerized applications.

Installation on Kubernetes clusters is only supported on the Red Hat OpenShift platform.

Kubernetes knowledge is required for this installation method.

Kubernetes Clusters Architecture

Turbonomic is a containerized microservices platform that installs onto a Red Hat OpenShift cluster in a single namespace deployment. The platform uses an Operator pattern to deploy, manage, and run the IBM components. The Turbonomic Platform Operator (t8c-operator) uses a Custom Resource Definition (kind: Xl), and uses a Custom Resource to configure and adjust your setup.

As part of your deployment, you can take advantage of the backup and HA capabilities of an external database service running outside of the node cluster.
