Before we get into the cluster creation this article assumes the following are already in place, though they are not mandatory and this article refers to them in different portions. You can get the sample scripts and templates from here.
VPC: You can also use the template
VPC subnet planning is a very crucial step and it requires utmost attention.
Kubernetes Client-Server: This server will be responsible for managing the Kubernetes. It will have the following pre-requisites in place. You can also use the script mentioned in
managerserver_script/installation.sh. I have used ubuntu machine so the scripts mentioned above are based on that.
