Kubernetes uses etcd to reliably store data in a distributed fashion. One of the necessary steps for setting up a Kubernetes cluster from scratch is to configure an etcd cluster that spans all of the Kubernetes control nodes. In this activity, you will learn how to install and configure an etcd cluster in preparation for setting up Kubernetes. After completing this exercise, you should be able to stand up a multi-node etcd cluster that is capable of supporting the Kubernetes control plane.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
