As part of the seasonal home lab tidy-up I reinstalled Ubuntu Bionic Beaver (18.04) on my NUC and instead of using kubeadm to deploy Kubernetes I turned to Canonicals MicroK8s Snap and was blown away by the speed and ease with which I could get a basic lab environment up and running.
This guide describes how to run a Docker Swarm cluster with local registry on Windows 10 using Hyper-V. It fleshes out an extremely cut down set of instructions I’d previously posted in this gist.
