Getting started with Constellation
Edgeless System's Chief Architect, Moritz Eckert, shows how to set up, scale, recover, delete, and upgrade a Constellation cluster.
1. Create a Constellation cluster
Creating a Constellation cluster only requires two easy commands: 'constellation config generate
'Constellation apply'. Please note that these videos were filmed when Constellation version 2.9.1 was the newest release.
2. Deploy and scale an application in a Constellation cluster
Constellation has all the features of a regular Kubernetes, like scaling and autoscaling.
3. Recover a Constellation cluster after restoring it
If there are too many concurrent node failures in the control plane, you may want to recover your Constellation cluster. Note that recovery is rarely needed, because Constellation is built for high availability and automatically and securely replaces failed nodes.
4. Delete a Constellation cluster
If you don't need your cluster anymore, you can easily terminate it by using the Constellation CLI.
5. Upgrade a Constellation cluster
You can upgrade all components of your Constellation cluster, like the Kubernetes version, node image, and microservices.
