If you already have a cluster running you can skip this section and go to Installation.

There are various ways to get a Kubernetes cluster up and running, below is a list them and a guide for each one.

Choose one way and follow the guide below to prepare the environment. Once the environment is ready you should have a kubernetes cluster up and running and the credentials prepared in order to connect with the cluster.
