Wed, Jan 20, 2021, 4:00 PM (IST)

K3s is an open source project that recently got accepted to the CNCF Sandbox. The main goal of K3s is providing a lightweight k8s distribution using a single binary, while reducing the memory consumed by the orchestration tool. We will discuss what k3s is, compare it to k8s, see how it can be installed for different purposes, and go over its recent features and improvements.

About this event

With Kubernetes becoming the standard container orchestration tool, we got to a point in which apps are deployed and managed in the same ecosystem for different purposes. As a result, the number of Kubernetes distributions started to rise in order to deal with different scenarios. To name a few: OpenShift, RKE, Tanzu…

K3s is one of the newest distributions made by Rancher, which is an open source project that recently joined the list of CNCF Sandbox projects. The main goal of K3s is providing a lightweight k8s distribution using a single binary, while reducing the memory consumed by the orchestration tool. 

We will discuss what k3s is, compare it to k8s, see how it can be installed for different purposes and go over its recent features and improvements.

On this meetup we'll host Ronen Levinson, a DevOps Engineer at Sisense. Ronen is passionate about new technologies, open source projects and cloud-native tools. He is co-organizer of GitHub User Group, a meetup group which discusses GitHub new features and Git practices.

The session will be delivered in Hebrew
