Deploying a Kubernetes Cluster with Kyma on SAP BTP

Objective

After completing this lesson, you will be able to Deploy a Kubernetes cluster with Kyma on SAP BTP.

Deploy a Kubernetes Cluster with Kyma on SAP BTP

Business Scenario

You want to get started with the SAP BTP, Kyma runtime. For this, you need to deploy a Kubernetes cluster with Kyma. You want to do this on your SAP BTP subaccount.

Exercise Options

You can perform this exercise in two ways:

  1. Platform Simulation – follow the step-by-step instructions within the simulation.
  2. Live Environment - by using the instructions provided below, you can perform the steps in the SAP BTP Free Tier account.

Note

We strongly recommend that you perform the steps in the Live Environment first.

Platform Simulation

Choose the Start Exercise button below to open a simulation of the platform. Then follow the step-by-step instructions to deploy a Kubernetes Cluster with Kyma on SAP BTP.

Live Environment

In this exercise, you will perform the following steps:

  1. Enable the SAP BTP, Kyma runtime on your SAP BTP subaccount.
  2. Verify that the SAP BTP, Kyma runtime is enabled.

Prerequisites

You have a SAP BTP subaccount with a SAP BTP, Kyma runtime entitlement (Free Tier or Paid), or a local Kubernetes/k3d cluster where Kyma is installed.

Note

If you don't have a SAP BTP subaccount, you can use the SAP BTP Free Tier account. You can find the instructions on how to create a Free Tier account here. You can skip the part of the Cloud Foundry environment creation.

If you don't have access to a SAP BTP subaccount, then you could also setup Kyma locally on your machine with k3d. For this, please follow the steps here.

Task 1: Enable the SAP BTP, Kyma runtime

Steps

  1. Enable the SAP BTP, Kyma runtime in your subaccount.

    1. Go to your SAP BTP subaccount.

    2. Choose the Enable Kyma button.

      Note

      This button only appears here, if you have a SAP BTP, Kyma runtime entitlement.

    3. In the pop-up window, enter your cluster name of choice and choose the Create button.

      Note

      The service plan depends on your subaccounts provider (AWS, Azure, GCP, and so on).

    4. Now, you can see the cluster creation process. This might take between 20 and 60 minutes.

  2. Verify that the SAP BTP, Kyma runtime is enabled.

    When the SAP BTP, Kyma runtime is enabled, you can see some cluster details and also a link to the Kyma console / dashboard.

    Note

    The kubeconfig file can be downloaded here as well, by choosing the KubeconfigURL link.

Result

You have successfully deployed a Kubernetes cluster with Kyma on your SAP BTP subaccount.
