Preparing your LKE Cluster

Hydrolix requires a few steps to be done in the Linode Cloud console, mainly creating a new object storage bucket with access key and a kubernetes cluster.

Create your Bucket

Log into your Linode cloud account, click on the button Create and then Bucket:


In the right hand side type the name of the bucket you want to use for Hydrolix (this is the bucket where Hydrolix will write the data) and the region you want to use.
For now we recommend using Atlanta.


Finally once the bucket is created we need to create the access key, in the menu click on Access Keys:


Create Access Key, and specify that this key has read and write access to the bucket previously created.


Store the AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY as those will be needed later on.

Create your Kubernetes Cluster

Click on the button Create and then Kubernetes:


Then select the same region used to create your bucket, currently the latest version of K8s in Linode is version 1.23
Select the Dedicated 32GB Node Pools, the click create cluster:


Once the cluster is created, you need to enable autoscaling and download the kubectl configuration file:

12941294 601601

The hard part is over !

What’s Next

Now we need to download Hydrolix Kubernetes Tools and deploy our operator!
