Add labels to cluster nodes

With MKE, you can add labels to your nodes. Labels are metadata that describe the node, such as:

  • node role (development, QA, production)

  • node region (US, EU, APAC)

  • disk type (HDD, SSD)

Once you apply a label to a node, you can specify constraints when deploying a service to ensure that the service only runs on nodes that meet particular criteria.


Use resource sets (MKE collections or Kubernetes namespaces) to organize access to your cluster, rather than creating labels for authorization and permissions to resources.
