Kubernetes worker node

For a fully redundant setup, you need a minimum of three primary nodes with master scheduling configured. For lab and POC setups, you can use one single node to function as both the primary node and worker node.


For your production deployment scale and size estimate and to discuss detailed dimensioning requirements, contact your Juniper Partner or Juniper Sales Representative.

Software Requirements

  • Ubuntu version 18.04.4 or later, or CentOS version 7 or later must be installed on each node.

  • Docker CE installed on the control host. The recommended version of Docker CE is 18.09 and later.

    Docker CE allows you to run the Paragon Automation installer file, which is packaged with Ansible (version 2.9.5) and the roles and playbooks that are required to install the cluster.
