To use Kubernetes, you need to have the following tools installed in your local environment:

  • kubectl: Kubernetes Control CLI tool, installed and connected to your cluster

You also need a Kubernetes Cluster, here you have several options:

  • Local for development you can use: Kubernetes KIND, Minikube, MicroK8s.
  • Remote: Google GKE, Azure AKS, Amazon EKS, etc.

You can use free trials from different cloud providers to create a Kubernetes cluster to test Zeebe in the cloud.
