Kubernetes Platform: Usage

Once you have the platform installed we recommend deploying our sample application to get a feel for how the platform works. The sample application is a simple Ruby on Rails application using Postgres as it's primary database, Redis for pub/sub and background job processing, and Elasticsearch for full text search.

To interact with the platform, you'll use k, a CLI tool we developed for managing all day-to-day DevOps tasks. Think of it as the heroku CLI tool but faster and... better 🕺.

In the following screencast we will cover both installation of k and deployment of the sample application. Note that the screencast was recorded before we added Elasticsearch to the application. Instructions on how to add Elasticsearch are provided in the application's README.
