I’m exploring a fascinating Kubernetes variant from Ranchel Labs, K3S (How do you pronounce this? “Kiss”? 😀 ).
It’s looking very promising to me – lightweight, easy to install and using a real DB as control plane store instead of etcd! They target it to Edge and IOT kind of applications, but I see it larger that that. In my opinion it should also run in the cloud very well or be a nice base for on-premises development workflows, assuring good portability to “big” managed K8S in the cloud.
Also runs on Raspberry Pi!
Expect an article on this soon enough!
