KubeOne is an open source cluster lifecycle management tool for single Kubernetes clusters. It automates the deployment and Day 2 operations of Highly Available clusters for the cloud, the datacenter, and edge and IoT environments. “KubeOne was first released as an open source project in May 2019. 15 months, 760 commits and 600 Github stars later, we are proud to have achieved this milestone. This major release is another important step in fulfilling our mission of making Kubernetes as easy as possible for everyone and regardless of the underlying infrastructure,” says CEO Sebastian Scheele.
KubeOne 1.0 complements the company’s open source Kubernetes automation portfolio including Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform for large scale multi-cloud deployments and KubeCarrier for centralized cloud native service management.

Major highlights of the release include:

Complete Cluster Reconciliation Using a Single Command
KubeOne 1.0 comes with a new apply command which takes care of the complete cluster reconciliation, including provisioning, upgrading, and repairing clusters. The apply command is capable of creating new worker nodes, reconciling addons, and can be used in complex scenarios such as disaster recovery.

KubeOneCluster API Promoted to Beta
The KubeOneCluster API has been promoted to v1beta1, bringing more stability, maturity, and many other improvements. The new API makes it easier to manage the cluster in a clear and concise way, and utilize all the new features. Users can easily migrate all existing manifests to the new API by using the kubeone config migrate command.

Static Worker Nodes Support for Bare-metal, IoT, and Edge Environments
KubeOne 1.0 introduces support for provisioning Kubernetes clusters with static worker nodes. This simplifies the management of Kubernetes clusters on bare-metal, IoT, edge, and other environments not supported by machine-controller. The new Static Worker Nodes Feature empowers users to create instances using their preferred approach, define them in the cluster configuration, and let KubeOne provision and join them to the cluster.

Deploy the CNI Plugin Of Your Choice
KubeOne 1.0 adds the option to deploy any CNI plugin. In combination with a powerful Addon mechanism, users can ensure that the CNI plugin of their choice is deployed right on the provisioning time.

Extended OS Support With Flatcar, CentOS 8, and RHEL
The 1.0 release introduces support of Flatcar Container Linux as a replacement of CoreOS. The CentOS support has been extended with the support of CentOS 8. Besides Flatcar and CentOS 8, the OS support has been extended with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
