ShapeBlock uses Terraform to spin up infrastructure in your cloud provider’s account. After the VMs are provisioned, we use Ansible to provision Microk8s on your VMs.

Why microk8s?

It is the simplest, minimum-viable, production ready kubernetes flavour in the market. It is agnostic of the cloud vendor and comes with the ability to provision addons.

What else is installed?

Some staple microk8s addons are enabled: Let’s encrypt certificate issuer, nginx ingress controller, local storage. Even though microk8s comes with it’s own container registry, we install a different container registry in your microk8s cluster.
