Microk8s is an amazing platform for running Kubernetes applications on devices with constrained resources. It is very stable, Kubernetes API compliant, and “just works”.

But if you decide to base your environment off MicroK8s, very quickly you realise that multi-cluster management is not easy, and even harder is deploying your applications consistently across dozens of remote environments. Things compound if your environments are remote, connected to public networks, like 4G or Satellite, or even consumer internet connections.

How can you successfully manage hundreds (or even thousands) of remote MicroK8s clusters? How can you deploy your application to multiple clusters at the same time?

Come see the easiest way to do this, using Portainer.
