Calyptia Core deploy command

Calyptia CLI

One available method to install on top of Kubernetes is to use Calyptia CLI. Calyptia CLI lets you manage, operate, and create multiple core instances. Before getting started, ensure the following two requirements are fulfilled:

  • Verify that the current Kubernetes context is configured to the cluster you want to deploy in. Run kubectl get nodes to determine which cluster is in the current context.
  • You must have the proper token for authentication. Retrieve the token by signing in to Calyptia Core, and in the navigation menu select Core Instances, click New Instance, enter the name and tags you want to use, click Next, and view the information in the Calyptia CLI tab.

Deployment

See the Install using Calyptia CLI guide or Install using Helm guide for details about how to install and set up your first Calyptia Core instance in your Kubernetes cluster.
