Rancher Labs created K3s to solve a problem anyone who works with constrained resources understands: Kubernetes doesn’t run in those environments. We removed alpha and optional features, converted others to dynamic add-ons, and replaced etcd with sqlite. The result is a single binary that works on x86 and Arm processors and lets you run Kubernetes workloads on hardware with as little as 512 MB of RAM.We want to share K3s with as many people in the Kubernetes and Open Source community as we can. We’ve put together a live presentation to demonstrate a tiny slice of what people can do with K3s. It begins with a discussion of what K3s is and how it works, and then follows with a live demonstration of the software by installing it on a small (SBC) devices. With the basic cluster up and running, we will take a look at how to scale both services and the cluster itself. The presentation is very interactive and we anticipate lots of Q&A.
