A Comparative Analysis of Kubernetes Deployment Tools: Kubespray, kops, and conjure-up
Manual Kubernetes deployment is inefficient in terms of time, efforts, and resources. The process gets even more complicated when it comes to on-premises installations. This 12-page technical report overviews three open-source tools—Kubespray, kops, and conjure-up—designed to facilitate the mundane deployment tasks of a production-grade Kubernetes cluster. The solutions were compared across six criteria:
- installation simplicity
- scalability and distribution
- supported cluster operations
- debugging simplicity
The results of the comparative analysis are supported by six tables and two code samples.
