This document describes how to quickly create a container cluster using TKE.
If you already have a Tencent Cloud account, ignore this step.
TKE charges cluster management fees based on the specifications of the managed clusters, and charges cloud resources fees based on the actual usage. For billing modes and prices, see TKE Billing Overview. In this document, a managed cluster is created. You still need to pay for services such as cluster worker nodes, persistent storage, and CLB instances bound to the service. Before making a purchase, top up your account as instructed in Payment Methods.
Open the Tencent Cloud console, select Tencent Cloud services > Tencent Kubernetes Engine to enter the TKE console and authorize TKE according to the prompts. If you have already authorized TKE, skip this step.
On the Cluster information page, enter the cluster name and select the region of the cluster, the cluster network, and container network. Keep other default options unchanged and click Next.
On the Select model page, confirm the billing mode, select an availability zone and the corresponding subnet, confirm the node model and click Next.
On the CVM configuration page, select the login method, keep other default settings unchanged, and click Next.
On the Add-on configurations page, you can choose the add-ons you need, including storage, monitoring, image, etc. If you don't need them, click Next. Here, we choose not to install add-ons and keep other default settings unchanged.
On the Confirm information page, confirm the selected configuration information and billing mode for the cluster and click Done.
You can create your first cluster after paying the bill. Then you can view the managed cluster you create in the TKE console.
You can view clusters that have been created in the cluster list. You can click the cluster ID to enter the details page, and then view the cluster, node, and network information on the "Basic information" page.
Once started, clusters will start to consume resources. To avoid unnecessary costs, you can follow the steps below to clear all the resources.
Now you know how to create and delete clusters in TKE. You can set workloads and create services in the clusters. Common tasks include:
