MKE, MSR, and MCR Compatibility Matrix

The MKE, MSR, and MCR platform subscription provides software, support, and certification to enterprise development and IT teams that build and manage critical apps in production at scale. It provides a trusted platform for all apps which supply integrated management and security across the app lifecycle, comprised primarily of Mirantis Kubernetes Engine (MKE), Mirantis Secure Registry (MSR), and Mirantis Container Runtime (MCR).

Mirantis validates the MKE, MSR, and MCR platform for the operating system environments specified here, adhering to the MKE, MSR, and MCR Maintenance Lifecycle. Support for the MKE, MSR, and MCR platform is defined in the Mirantis Cloud Native Platform Subscription Services agreement.

MKE 3.4, MSR 2.9, and MCR 20.10
