1. **Kubernetes Cluster:** An RBAC-enabled Kubernetes cluster is required to deploy Knative.
The simplest way to get started is to add a cluster using [GitLab's GKE integration](../index.md#adding-and-creating-a-new-gke-cluster-via-gitlab).
Minimum recommended cluster size to run Knative is 3-nodes, 6 vCPUs, and 22.50 GB memory.
1. **Helm Tiller:** Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes and is required to install
Knative.
1. **GitLab Runner:** A runner is required to run the CI jobs that will deploy serverless
applications or functions onto your cluster. You can install the GitLab Runner
onto the existing kubernetes cluster. See [Installing Applications](../index.md#installing-applications) for more information.
1. **Domain Name:** Knative will provide its own load balancer using Istio. It will provide an
external IP address for all the applications served by Knative. You will be prompted to enter a
wildcard domain where your applications will be served. Configure your DNS server to use the

1. The ingress is now available at this address and will route incoming requests to the proper service based on the DNS
name in the request. To support this, a wildcard DNS A record should be created for the desired domain name. For example,
if your Knative base domain is `knative.info` then you need to create an A record with domain `*.knative.info`
if your Knative base domain is `example.com` then you need to create an A record with domain `*.example.com`
pointing the ip address of the ingress.

NOTE: **Note:**
You can deploy either [functions](#deploying-functions) or [serverless applications](#deploying-serverless-applications)
on a given project but not both. The current implementation makes use of a `serverless.yml` file to signal a FaaS project.
