Day 0 - Get Started with DKP
At D2iQ, we partner with you throughout the entire cloud-native journey, at the beginning on Day 0 all the way through your Day 2 operations. Here is the breakdown:
Day 0 is the planning phase where we introduce definitions and concepts.
Day 1 is to install the software and get it up and running.
Day 2 involves customizations, application management, and operations management.
When installing DKP, the first step is to determine the infrastructure on which you want to deploy. Then, ensure you understand the basic concepts and have the prerequisites met, like storage and resource requirements, using the information contained in this section of the documentation.
For example, you can:
Install on a public cloud infrastructure, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), GCP, or Azure.
Install on an internal network, on-premises environment, with a physical or virtual infrastructure.
Install on an Air-gapped environment.
Install with or without FIPS and GPU.
After you choose your environment, you download DKP, and then select the Day 1 - Basic Install instructions for your Infrastructure provider and environment. The basic installs set up a cluster with the Konvoy component, and then install the Kommander component, so that you can access the dashboards through the DKP UI. You can use this basic cluster to explore DKP and prepare to take your clusters into production, where you will deploy and enable the applications that support Day 2 operations. Then you can deploy and test your workload, and put Kubernetes to work!
After you finish the basic install and are ready to customize, move to Additional Infrastructure Configuration, if desired. Last, proceed to Day 2 Cluster Operations Management to make the software exactly what you want it to be.
Follow this list, contained in the Get Started section to ensure you have all the resource requirements met for a successful implementation:
