Kubernetes the hard way but on-prem - part 1 (Discontinued)

DISCLAIMER I decided to not continue with this due to the huge implications that will be to redo everything not in the cloud. Basically, a lot of time should be invested and I miscalculated it by too much. Therefore, this will be probably the first and only post about these series. Context In order to practice for the CKA exam, it is recommended to perform the famous Kubernetes The Hard Way by Kelsey Hightower....
