What's Orka?

Orka (Orchestration with Kubernetes on Apple) is a new virtualization layer for Mac build infrastructure. Orka offers the first and only solution for orchestrating macOS in a cloud environment using Kubernetes on genuine Apple hardware.

What's in the demo?

Follow the step-by-step guide to create a macOS VM on genuine Apple hardware and deploy a Jenkins build pipeline. After, explore the sandbox environment for up to two hours and experience the power of Orka.

Deploy a VM with the Orka CLI

Use orka vm create to create and deploy a VM. You can manually choose which node will provide the required RAM and CPU, or let Orka decide based on availability.

Explore Your Live VM

Deploy your virtual machine then login via VNC. You'll get a full macOS GUI right inside the browser. Explore the VM and launch applications like Safari or Xcode.

"Orka is the closest thing you can get to Google Cloud or AWS for macOS." - Mike McQuaid, Homebrew
