Bare-Metal Kubernetes, Part I: Talos on Hetzner

The author shares their experience of running a Kubernetes cluster on a mix of virtual and bare metal machines with Hetzner. They mention that the initial setup wasn’t well-documented, so they decide to rebuild the cluster from scratch and document the process through a series of posts. The author plans to cover various topics such as provisioning the server, installing Talos Linux, implementing network policies and firewall rules, managing deployed resources with FluxCD, and more. They highlight the challenges and trade-offs they encountered when using different tools and distributions for Kubernetes deployment. The author expresses their preference for Talos Linux and provides a step-by-step guide for installing and configuring it on a Hetzner dedicated server.
