Deploy OpenStack cloud provider for Kubernetes

Deploy OpenStack cloud provider for Kubernetes

Note

This feature is available as technical preview in the MCP Build ID 2019.2.0. Starting from the MCP 2019.2.2 update, the feature is fully supported.

If you have a predeployed OpenStack environment, you can deploy a Kubernetes cluster on VMs on top of OpenStack and enable the OpenStack cloud provider functionality.

The OpenStack cloud provider allows you to leverage Cinder volumes and Neutron LBaaS (Octavia) that enhance the Kubernetes cluster functionality.

The two main functions provided by the OpenStack cloud provider are PersistentVolume for pods and LoadBalancer for services.
