How to prepare a Kubernetes cluster for Jenkins X

Jenkins X runs on a Kubernetes cluster. There are a number of approaches for creating this cluster. Our recommended approach is to use a cloud provider to create and manage your Kubernetes clusters. We also recommend using Terraform to set up and manage all required cloud infrastructure.

To make this as easy as possible, we are providing Terraform Modules for the most popular cloud providers:

The modules can be found in the Terraform Registry, as well as on GitHub.

If you want to know more about which cloud resources are required by Jenkins X and created by Terraform refer to Required cloud resources.
