If you want to deploy this project for yourself, there are a few things you will need first.


This is an ARM64 compute cluster, so if you have any workloads that are x86_64 only, you will need to either migrate them, or find another solution.


These are not strictly necessary for a successful deployment, but will be required if you want to administer the cluster or cloud resources from your local system.

Other requirements

  • An Oracle Cloud account. 1
  • A Cloudflare account and domain name. 2
  • A Pushover account.
  • A GitLab account to host your repository, and leverage the CI/CD system.
  • A reasonable understanding of the technologies used within this project.

  1. Despite the fact that we are only leveraging always free resources, your Oracle Cloud account still needs to be on the Pay-as-you-Go (PAYG) tier. The reasons for this are twofold. One, it is nearly impossible to provision the compute resources from the free tier resource pool. Two, the Kubernetes control-plane is not available on the free tier account.
  2. You can use another DNS provider if you prefer, but you will need to modify the external-dns operator's configuration more extensively.
