You will need a Kubernetes instance, the kubectl and the helm tool in order to deploy this package. Please refer to our pre-requisites page for details. Any Kubernetes compatible cluster will do, as long as it meets the requirements.

Check access

Be sure that you are logged in to your Kubernetes cluster:

kubectl version

This should print out the version of the client, but must also print out the version of the server.

Example output
Client Version: version.Info{Major:"1", Minor:"16", GitVersion:"v1.16.1", GitCommit:"d647ddbd755faf07169599a625faf302ffc34458", GitTreeState:"clean", BuildDate:"2019-10-02T17:01:15Z", GoVersion:"go1.12.10", Compiler:"gc", Platform:"linux/amd64"}
Server Version: version.Info{Major:"1", Minor:"13+", GitVersion:"v1.13.4+c2a5caf", GitCommit:"c2a5caf", GitTreeState:"clean", BuildDate:"2019-09-21T02:12:52Z", GoVersion:"go1.11.13", Compiler:"gc", Platform:"linux/amd64"}

Install the package

The Cloud2Edge package consists of multiple components. In order to keep them together and separate from other components running in your Kubernetes cluster, it is feasible to install them into their own name space. The following command creates the cloud2edge name space but you can select any other name as well.

kubectl create namespace $NS

Next, install the package to the name space using Helm.

Kubernetes variants like kind or Minikube do not support exposing service endpoints via load balancers out of the box. Instead, services are exposed via NodePorts.

helm install -n $NS --wait --timeout 15m $RELEASE eclipse-iot/cloud2edge

Managed Kubernetes variants usually support exposing service endpoints via load balancers on public IP addresses. To install the Cloud2Edge package using load balancers, run the following command:

helm install -n $NS --wait --timeout 15m --set hono.useLoadBalancer=true --set ditto.nginx.service.type=LoadBalancer $RELEASE eclipse-iot/cloud2edge

Ready to run

Once the package’s pods are all up and running, you can start using its services. The easiest way of getting to know the Cloud2Edge package is by taking a little tour.
