There are a few conventional options, but they are either cloud or distribution specific. While we were working on our open source Pipeline Platform, we needed a solution which covered (here follows an inclusive but not exhaustive list of requirements): provisioning of Kubernetes clusters on all major cloud providers (via REST, UI and CLI) using a unified interface application lifecycle management (on-demand deploy, CI/CD, dependency management, etc) preferably over a REST interface support for multi tenancy, and advanced security scenarios (app to app security with dynamic secrets, standards, multi-auth backends, and more) ability to build cross-cloud or hybrid Kubernetes environments This posts highlights the ease of creating Kubernetes clusters using the Pipeline API on the following providers:

It is the most famous and infamous reef on the planet, and serves as the benchmark by which all other surf breaks are measured. Pipeline is a PaaS with a built in CI/CD engine to deploy cloud native microservices to a public cloud or on-premise. It simplifies and abstracts all the details of provisioning cloud infrastructure, installing or reusing a Kubernetes cluster, and deploying an application.
