Update from 2020-04-29: If you missed the Online Conference Virtual Rejekts 2020, here is the talk from Gerrit:

metal-stack is a new open source project that lets you produce kubernetes clusters on bare-metal comparable to hyperscalers but on a full open-source stack targeted for on-premise setups.

metal-stack comprises:

  • an API to manage bare metal resources (machines, firewalls, switches)
  • an implementation of a cloud controller manager for this API
  • layer-3-only networking based on BGP and virtual routers which comes handy for cluster network separation, usage of metal-lb as implementation for Service-Type Loadbalancer and Cilium as CNI

You’ll get an intro to metal-stack, the underlying considerations for it and a demo where we create a bare metal cluster with SAP Gardener as cluster manager.
