Create your own Clusters (CYOC)

Ori allows you to create a Kubernetes (K8s) cluster on any chosen provider. Currently, we support AWS as the only cloud provider. Support for Azure and GCP will be added in the near future. Users with Owner access can create a K8s cluster,

Step-by-Step Guide: Creating Your Kubernetes Cluster

To start, you'll need to provide your cloud provider credentials. Since we currently support AWS, you'll need to provide your AWS access key ID and secret access key. These credentials will be securely saved in the Ori platform.

Also, provide the Name and Description (Optional) for quick identification of credentials, in case of mnore than one provider accounts.

Once your provider credentials are saved, navigate to the cluster dashboard and click on Add cluster. This will open a new modal dialog and you'll be presented with the options to choose how you want to onboard the cluster. For CYOC, choose Let Ori create a cluster for me.

Next, enter the following details:

  • Cluster Name - Choose a name that identifies your cluster.
  • Description - (Optional) Provide a brief description of the cluster's purpose.
  • Allow to run Privileged Containers - (Optional) The processes in privileged containers are equivalent to processes running with full administrative privileges on the cluster nodes. When enabled, this may give them access to secure content from sources other than their owning application.
  • Assign to project(s) - For organisations on the Platform plan, this defaults to the project existing at the time of onboarding. If you're working on a specific project, you can choose to assign this cluster to that project.
  • Region - Select the region where you want to create the cluster.
  • Cluster Credentials - Choose the AWS access credentials you provided earlier.

Set the desired configuration for your cluster:

  • Instance Size - Choose the instance size that meets your application's requirements.
  • Disk Size - Select the disk size for your instances.
  • Minimum and Maximum Nodes - Define the minimum and maximum number of nodes for your cluster.

After entering the above details, click on Create.
