Kubernetes support termination notice

Starting with the MCP 2019.2.5 update, the Kubernetes component is no longer supported as a part of the MCP product. This implies that Kubernetes is not tested and not shipped as an MCP component. Although the Kubernetes Salt formula is available in the community driven SaltStack formulas ecosystem, Mirantis takes no responsibility for its maintenance.

Customers looking for a Kubernetes distribution and Kubernetes lifecycle management tools are encouraged to evaluate the Mirantis Kubernetes-as-a-Service (KaaS) and Docker Enterprise products.

Kubernetes is the system for containerized applications automated deployment, scaling, and management. This section guides you through the manual deployment of a Kubernetes cluster on bare metal with Calico plugin set for Kubernetes networking. For an easier deployment process, use the automated DriveTrain deployment procedure described in Deploy a Kubernetes cluster.


OpenContrail 4.x for Kubernetes 1.12 or later is not supported.
