Welcome to the Talos documentation. If you are just getting familiar with Talos, we recommend starting here:

  • What is Talos: a quick description of Talos
  • Quickstart: the fastest way to get a Talos cluster up and running
  • Getting Started: a long-form, guided tour of getting a full Talos cluster deployed

Open Source
