Create a Cluster

To create a Kubernetes cluster in NKS, click the +CREATE CLUSTER button. Customize any defaults you want, including changing the region, size and number of nodes, adding packaged Helm charts, etc. Then NKS will create your cluster on the provider of your choice.

Before you create a Kubernetes cluster with NKS, you will need to add your provider credentials.

For step-by-step instructions, see our guides by provider:

Accessing Clusters

Although you can perform many tasks directly through the NKS UI, there are some cases when you will want to interact with your cluster(s) more directly.
