How platform sensitive is Kubernetes and Docker?
That is, can I build a cluster on disparate hardware?
Suppose, for example, I have a REST api I’ve written in ASP.NET Core. The language and development environment is generally cross-platform.
I can then build a Docker container for my API, and I can even build a multi-arch container, so images built from my container will run on both ARM and AMD64.
Can I then build a Kubernetes cluster on mixed ARM and Intel/AMD hardware?
If I do, do all of the images I deploy have to be multi-arch?
Or can I have single-arch images, and expect that K8S will be smart enough to only schedule single-arch images on nodes that can support them?
