Kops stands for Kubernetes Operations. It is a set of tools that is used for installing, operating, and deleting Kubernetes cluster on AWS Cloud. It is considered as the production grade setup for the Kubernetes cluster.
It supports additional functionality, which is mentioned as follows:
- Deploying HA of K8s master
- Supporting easy version upgrade
- Ability to generate configuration files for AWS CloudFormation and Terraform configuration
- Supporting custom Kubernetes add-ons
When the Kubernetes cluster is up and running, we will have to use the kubectl command to remotely connect to the master server and manage all the resources.
