About Creating Kubernetes Objects

The MapR Data Platform for Kubernetes includes a bootstrapinstall utility for installing the operators for creating various Kubernetes resources. These resources include namespaces, operators, secrets, RBAC info, pods, resource quotas, etc. The main job of the bootstrapinstall utility is to deploy a set of Kubernetes operators. Operators include both Custom Resource Definitions (CRD) and controller pods.

The following sections provide a brief overview of the Kubernetes components and concepts that you should review before deploying the MapR Kubernetes Ecosystem. If you are already comfortable with Kubernetes, proceed to Bootstrapping Your Environment.
