This section contains instructions for installing k3s in testing and production environments. Please ensure you have met the Node Requirements before you begin installing k3s.

Installation Options

  • Single Master Installation

    Install k3s on a single Linux host. Single master installs are recommended for development and test environments, as setup is simple and the cluster doesn’t have to be readily available for a user-base.

  • High Availability (HA) Installation

    Install k3s on two or more Linux hosts. High Availability installs are recommended for production environments.
