Now that we have an idea of how to interact with Apache OpenWhisk and the basic concepts behind it, we can look at deploying a copy on top of a Kubernetes cluster. To do this, I am going to launch a three-node cluster in Google Cloud by running the following:
$ gcloud container clusters create kube-cluster
Once the cluster is up-and-running, you can check that you can see three nodes by running the following:
$ kubectl get nodes
Now we have our Kubernetes, we can progress with the Apache OpenWhisk deployment.
