These tutorials will enable you to maximize Palette's ability to manage Kubernetes at scale. Check out the sections below to learn more about crucial Palette concepts.

  • Profiles - Palette profiles allow you to specify layers for your workloads using packs, Helm charts, Zarf packages, or cluster manifests. Packs serve as blueprints to the provisioning and deployment process, as they contain the versions of the container images that Palette will install for you.
  • Cluster Deployment - Kubernetes clusters in Palette are instantiated from cluster profiles. A cluster definition in Palette consists of a reference to a cluster profile, cloud configuration, as well as the cluster size and placement configuration.
  • Cluster Management - Palette supports several Day-2 operations to manage the end-to-end lifecycle of Kubernetes clusters. It also provides several capabilities across new and imported clusters to perform ongoing management operations like backup/restore and to keep your clusters secure, compliant, and up to date.
  • Edge - Edge clusters are Kubernetes clusters set up on Edge hosts installed in isolated locations like grocery stores and restaurants versus a data center or cloud environment. These Edge hosts can be bare metal machines or virtual machines and are managed by operators at remote sites.
