Deploying your first application

You can use the generated kubeconfig file in Kubernetes with any deployment system.

🔀 Routing traffic

Create a Service and Ingress for your application.

Learn more about the capabilities of the ingress-nginx module.

🔍 Monitoring your application

Add "my-app" and "80" annotations to the Service created.

Other features

⚖ Managing nodes

Run the following command to list nodegroups created in the cluster during the deployment process: kubectl get nodegroups. For more information, see the node-manager’s documentation.

You only need to make changes to minPerZone and maxPerZone parameters to scale the existing groups. If these two parameters are not equal, Deckhouse will automatically launch an autoscaler.

You need to create a new InstanceClass and a NodeGroup referring to it to create new groups.
