There are many different tools available to bootstrap and manage Kubernetes cluster within various platform, but they don't all interoperate. Cluster API project attempts to solve this issue, which creates common declarative API, tools, and best practices for deploying, configuring, and managing Kubernetes in multiple platforms. It supports many public cloud provider plugins, and on-premise with vSphere and OpenStack.

However, running Cluster API for raw baremetal KVM machines without IaaS vendor remains a challenge. In this talk, we will show you how we use and configure Libvirt to create custom provider for Cluster API. Libvirt is an open-source API and management tool widely used for managing various virtualization platform. This enables us to manage Kubernetes on baremetal KVM/Qemu machines easily, with extensibility to run in Xen and other platform not supported by Cluster API.
