K0s: The New Itty-Bitty, Vanilla Kubernetes Distro. While adding extensions to the Lens Kubernetes IDE, the Mirantis Lens IDE developer team decided they needed an ultra-lightweight Kubernetes distro. So, programmers being programmers, they made one of their own: k0s.
While adding extensions to the Lens Kubernetes IDE, the Mirantis Lens IDE developer team decided they needed an ultra-lightweight Kubernetes distro. So, programmers being programmers, they made one of their own: k0s.
“We wanted to create a modern, robust, and versatile base layer for various use cases where Kubernetes is in play. Something that leverages vanilla upstream Kubernetes and is versatile enough to cover use cases ranging from typical cloud-based deployments to various edge/IoT types of cases,” said Jussi Nummelin, Mirantis’ senior principal engineer, and k0s co-founder. “Leveraging our previous experiences, we really did not want to start maintaining the setup and packaging for various OS distros. Hence the packaging model of a single binary to allow us to focus more on the core problem rather than different flavors of packaging such as DEBs, RPMs, and whatnots.”
That’s a zero, by the way, not a capital letter O. Why zero? Because it’s meant to reduce developer friction to zero. K0s is distributed as a single binary with no host operating system dependencies besides the kernel. It does not require a specific host operating system distribution, or additionally installed packages. Looking forward, any vulnerability or performance issues will be fixed in the k0s distribution directly.
