What is KOPS? Self described as “The easiest way to get a production grade Kubernetes cluster up and running” (on AWS (and others, see below)). KOPS looks a lot like Terraform. In broad strokes it takes cluster, context specific arguments and creates cloud resources that house and facilitate the usage of a Kubernetes cluster. KOPS Highlights Automates the provisioning of Highly Available (HA) clusters on AWS from the CLI, similar to helm or kubectl.
