jx create cluster gke

Create a new Kubernetes cluster on GKE: Runs on Google Cloud


This command creates a new Kubernetes cluster on GKE, installing required local dependencies and provisions the Jenkins X platform

You can see a demo of this command here: https://jenkins-x.io/demos/create_cluster_gke/

Google Kubernetes Engine is a managed environment for deploying containerized applications. It brings our latest innovations in developer productivity, resource efficiency, automated operations, and open source flexibility to accelerate your time to market.

Google has been running production workloads in containers for over 15 years, and we build the best of what we learn into Kubernetes, the industry-leading open source container orchestrator which powers Kubernetes Engine.
