In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to install Droid's agent into your Kubernetes cluster. Then we’ll deploy a sample application to show off what it can do.
Installing Droid is easy. Just before we can do anything, we need to ensure you have access to modern Kubernetes cluster with a publicly exposed IP and a functioning kubectl command on your local machine.
To signup for HybridK8s Droid, create a HybridK8s account here. Once created, verify your account and you can use the username and password to sign in to HybridK8s platform.
First, you will install the a service mesh, say, Linkerd onto your local machine. Using this CLI, you’ll then install the control plane onto your Kubernetes cluster. Finally, we'll install flagger operator.
Now that we have our cluster, we’ll install the Linkerd CLI and use it validate that your cluster is capable of hosting the Linkerd control plane.
