What is Pentagon?
Pentagon is a cli tool to generate repeatable, cloud-based Kubernetes infrastructure. It can be used as a “batteries included” default which can:
- provide a network with a cluster
- Two HA KOPS based Kubernetes clusters
- Segregated multiple development / non-production environments
- VPN-based access control
- A highly-available network, built across multiple Availability Zones
How does it work?
Pentagon produces a directory. The directory defines a basic set of configurations for Ansible, Terraform and kops). When those tools are run in a specific order the result is a VPC with a VPN and a Kubernetes Cluster in AWS. GKE Support is built in but not default. It is designed to be customizable while at the same time built with defaults that fit the needs of most web application companies.
The Getting Started has information about installing Pentagon and creating your first project.
