Lab2.1 About Ubuntu 20.04: do we need to create prior to the labs?


One question question for Lab2.1 and 2.2, for Windows users, do the lab expect that all students to create 2 Ubuntu 20.04 nodes prior to those Labs? Any suggestion of the creation? I am familiar to Vagrant to create virtual machines but not sure if I need to following the info from https://github.com/kelseyhightower/kubernetes-the-hard-way.

    Hi @caishaoping,

    Lab exercise 2.1 lists several infrastructures that can be used to provision your own lab environment. You can use cloud services or local hypervisors. Learners have used successfully VirtualBox, KVM, VMware, GCP GCE, AWS EC2. Please follow the sizing guide as well to ensure the VMs have sufficient resources. In addition, I would recommend watching the two demo videos from the introductory chapter for GCP and AWS cloud instances, as they present critical networking requirements that are equally important for local hypervisor environments as well.
