These projects showcase the versatility and adaptability of K3s in various environments, as well as extensions of K3s. They are all useful in creating large scale High Availability (HA) Kubernetes clusters.


For users seeking to bootstrap a multi-node K3s cluster and familiar with ansible, take a look at k3s-io/k3s-ansible repository. This set of ansible playbooks provides a convenient way to install K3s on your nodes, allowing you to focus on the configuration of your cluster rather than the installation process.


Another project that simplifies the process of setting up a K3s cluster is k3sup. This project,written in golang, only requires ssh access to your nodes. It also provides a convenient way to deploy K3s with external datastores, not just the embedded etcd.


Another provisioning tool, autok3s, provides a GUI for provising k3s cluster across a range of cloud providers, VMs, and local machines. This tool is useful for users who prefer a graphical interface for provising K3s clusters.
