Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
The FAQ is updated periodically and designed to answer the questions our users most frequently ask about K3s.
Is K3s a suitable replacement for k8s?
K3s is capable of nearly everything k8s can do. It is just a more lightweight version. See the main docs page for more details.
How can I use my own Ingress instead of Traefik?
Simply start K3s server with --no-deploy=traefik and deploy your ingress.
Does K3s support Windows?
At this time K3s does not natively support Windows, however we are open to the idea in the future.
How can I build from source?
Please reference the K3s BUILDING.md with instructions.
