Hands on Lab: Deploy a Kubernetes Cluster Using Oracle Cloud Shell
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes is a fully-managed, scalable, and highly available service that you can use to deploy your containerized applications to the cloud. Use Container Engine for Kubernetes when your development team wants to reliably build, deploy, and manage cloud-native applications. You specify the compute resources that your applications require, and Container Engine for Kubernetes provisions them on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in an existing OCI tenancy.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Cloud Shell is a web browser-based terminal accessible from the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console. Cloud Shell provides access to a Linux shell, with a pre-authenticated Oracle Cloud Infrastructure CLI. In addition to the CLI, Cloud Shell provides the following commonly used Kubernetes tools:

- A preinstalled version of kubectl, a command line tool for controlling Kubernetes clusters.
- A preinstalled version of Helm, a package manager used to deploy applications to Kubernetes clusters.

In this tutorial, you set up the Kubernetes configuration file for the cluster (the cluster's 'kubeconfig' file) to enable you to use kubectl to access the cluster from the Cloud Shell environment.

To execute the lab you will need access to an Oracle Cloud Account.
