Deploying a Hello World application with the OVH Control Panel

Find out how to deploy a Hello World application with the OVH Control Panel

Last updated 1st July, 2019.

Follow this quickstart guide to deploy a containerised Hello World application on your OVH Managed Kubernetes Service cluster, using the OVH Control Panel.

In this guide, we are assuming that you're using the OVH Control Panel to manage your Kubernetes cluster. If you are using a different method, like the OVH API, please refer to the appropriate documentation:

Before you begin

  • You should have already created a cluster on the OVH Managed Kubernetes service.
  • You will also need the kubectl command-line tool. You can find the detailed installation instructions for this tool on Kubernetes' official site.

Getting your cluster information

Access our administration UI for your OVH Managed Kubernetes clusters by clicking on the Platforms and services menu in the Cloud section of the OVH Control Panel.

Access to the administration UI

In this administration UI, you have three tabs:

  • Service: a global view of your cluster, with important information like the status, API URL, and kubectl configuration file.

  • Nodes: the active nodes of your cluster, with options for adding, modifying or removing them.

  • Containers and Services: coming soon...

Configuring the default settings for kubectl

Please refer to the Configuring kubectl on an OVH Managed Kubernetes cluster documentation for this part of the process.

Add a worker node

In the Computer Nodes tab of the administration UI, click on Add Node. For this example, choose a general purpose node, like the B2-7 flavor:

Add a worker node

Verify that your node is ready

In the Computer Nodes tab, you can inspect the state of your nodes. The node you have just created should now be in an Installing state. The node installation can take a minute, so feel free to take a short break, then try again until it's ready.

Verify your node is ready

Deploy your first application

You're now ready to deploy your first application.

For more details about this process, you can refer to our deploying an application documentation.
