Documentation and Best Practices

Learn how to use Cloudability and get the most out of our cloud cost management tool.


Kubernetes Cluster Provisioning


In order to gather the data we need to perform allocation for a given cluster, you will need to deploy the Cloudability Metrics Agent to each cluster you want to report on. This is done though a YAML deployment configured for each cluster, and dependent on the specific Kubernetes version you are running.


Getting Started

To provision your first cluster, please reach out to us to get started. We will ask you a few questions about your Kubernetes environment, and will securely share a YAML deployment for each cluster you want to report on.


Adding New Clusters

After provisioning your first cluster, you can provision additional clusters in Cloudability. Simply fill out the form with your Cluster Name, Kubernetes version, and RBAC requirements. We will generate a YAML for you to download, and you can run the deployment from there. Once doing this successfully, you will see data for the new cluster in the UI within a few hours. If you run into any issues with the deployment, please contact support



Upgrading Clusters

When upgrading to new Kubernetes versions, you may need to install a new version of the Cloudability Metrics Agent to ensure data continues to flow for that cluster. To do so, fill out the provisioning form in Cloudability with the same cluster name, new Kubernetes version, and RBAC requirements, and you'll get a YAML download for the new version of Kubernetes. This is particularly important when upgrading from 1.6.x to 1.7.x. please contact support with any questions about upgrades.
