Why Use k3s

Perfect for Edge

K3S is a highly available, certified Kubernetes distribution designed for production workloads in unattended, resource-constrained, remote locations or inside IoT appliances.

Simplified & Secure

K3S is packaged as a single <40MB binary that reduces the dependencies and steps needed to install, run and auto-update a production Kubernetes cluster.

Optimized for ARM

Both ARM64 and ARMv7 are supported with binaries and multiarch images available for both. K3S works great from something as small as a Raspberry Pi to an AWS a1.4xlarge 32GiB server.


How it Works

Get Started

1. Download k3s - latest release, x86_64, ARMv7, and ARM64 are supported
2. Run server
      

sudo k3s server &
# Kubeconfig is written to /etc/rancher/k3s/k3s.yaml
sudo k3s kubectl get node

# On a different node run the below. NODE_TOKEN comes from /var/lib/rancher/k3s/server/node-token
# on your server
sudo k3s agent --server https://myserver:6443 --token ${NODE_TOKEN}
