Creating clusters: overview

You can create different kinds of clusters in Anthos clusters on bare metal, including admin clusters (to control the resources of your clusters) and user clusters (to run workloads).

In addition, Anthos clusters on bare metal lets you create hybrid clusters that combine administration tasks and workloads, as well as controlling other user clusters. You can also run Anthos clusters on bare metal as a single standalone cluster.

Each of these configurations has their own advantages and benefits. For more information on deciding which configuration to develop, see Installation overview: choosing a deployment model.
