Initial setup - GCE/AWS/VB etc. Advice required. Lab 3.1
Hi. I'm struggling to get setup in the most appropriate way for the labs in 3.1. I completed the LFCS back in Dec and have been trying to find the best way to get set up to learn Kubernetes as part of the Cloud Engineer Bootcamp.
There are lots of different vendors mentioned and I keep seeing Google Cloud Platform pop up. I only have an 8GB, quad core laptop so I assume VirtualBox is not an option? Please feel free to correct me. I'm happy to pay a small amount in order to learn the basics.
I also got the impression from other discussions that minikube isn't really appropriate. I just wondered (and I know you're not supposed to choose favourites at the LF!) what would be the best site for me to use to continue my learning in the most accurate way in order to be prepared for the CKA exam? Are there any other pre-requisite materials that I should be learning? I feel as though I am already out of my depth and have only just begun.
P.S. Am I right in thinking that the lab support material videos for initial set up (GCE/AWS) precede the lab 3.1 instructions?
Thanks in advance. Mike
