Quick Start Guide

This quick start will demonstrate using Crossplane to deploy a portable stateful workload in the cloud provider of your choice. It will first dynamically provision a Kubernetes cluster within the cloud provider environment, followed by a stateful application and its database to the same environment. The database will also be dynamically provisioned using a managed service hosted by the cloud provider. The Workload will be deployed into the target Kubernetes cluster, and be configured to consume the database resource in a completely portable way.

The general steps for this example are as follows:

  1. Install Crossplane so it is ready to manage resources on your behalf: Install Crossplane
  2. Set up a cloud provider and add it to Crossplane: Adding a Cloud Provider
  3. Deploy a portable workload to the cloud provider: Deploying Workloads
