OpenShift Origin, our Red Hat distribution of Kubernetes, was recently renamed to OKD and you may want to give it a try yourself. I find that developers often ask how to get started with OKD, as they don’t have a lot of experience with systems administration tasks. For that reason, I created a video that shows how to install OKD 3.10 from start to finish. For the above video, I am using Fedora 28 and running a CentOS virtual machine with the popular VirtualBox software.
This is just one way to get up and running with OKD. I prefer this method as I tend to keep my environments around for the lifecycle of the release and don’t often shut them down. I also like to install OKD using the Ansible playbooks that are provided as the official way to install a cluster. It should also be noted that I have a home server that I can devote to running OKD full time. A few other options to use OKD locally include oc cluster upand minishift. These may be a better fit for your use case if you only need a quick throwaway environment.
