  • Cluster Name The name of the elastic cluster created is no more than 60 characters.
  • Kubernetes version Elastic cluster supports the selection of multiple Kubernetes versions above 1.12. For the comparison of the features of each version, please see Supported Versions of the Kubernetes Documentation .
  • Region It is recommended that you choose a nearby region according to your geographical location, which can reduce the delay of Access and improve the download speed.

Elastic TKE's Pod runs directly on the VPC network specified by the user, and each Pod is bound to a ENI within a specified VPC during the life cycle. You can go to ENI list Check out ENI of Pod Associate.

  • It is recommended to configure multiple availability zones for the container network, so that your workload will be automatically scattered in multiple availability zones during deployment, resulting in higher availability.
  • Make sure that there are sufficient subnets for the container network Assign IP to avoid creating a Pod when creating a large-scale workload because the IP resources are exhausted.
