What is Tarmak?
Tarmak is an open-source toolkit for Kubernetes cluster lifecycle management that focuses on best practice cluster security and cluster management/operation. It has been built from the ground-up to be cloud provider-agnostic and hence provides a means for consistent and reliable cluster deployment and management, across clouds and on-premises environments.
Tarmak and its underlying components are the product of Jetstack's work with its customers to build and deploy Kubernetes in production at scale.
Under-the-hood, Tarmak uses a number of well-known and proven components, including Terraform, Puppet and systemd.
