Here we list the most frequently requested OVHcloud Managed Kubernetes features that are currently available or planned in the upcoming year.
- Persistent Volumes: Use the integrated Cinder Volumes to host the persistent data of your stateful containerized workloads. More details can be found in the working with persistent volumes guide.
- Load Balancer: Use the integrated External Load Balancers to expose your services on any port of a dedicated public IPv4. More details can be found in the exposing your services guide.
- Private Network: Deploy Kubernetes in an OVHcloud Public Cloud private network to consume and expose applications on our multi-region and multi-product private network (vRack). Note: You can still leverage integrated External Load Balancers to expose some services on a public Internet IPv4.
- New versions: We support the last three stable K8s versions and offer the latest one during the quarter following its official release. We also propose managed version upgrades.
- RBAC and APIserver IP restrictions: Use the standard RBAC authorization mode to distribute rights within your organization and/or assure compatibility with specific applications. You can additionally choose to restrict access to your Kubernetes APIserver to a selection of IPv4 ranges.
- Pod autoscaling: Use the standard horizontal pod autoscaler to dynamically distribute your containerized workloads on a given set of worker nodes.
- Node pools management: Easily resize your cluster through our UI or directly using standard Kubernetes tooling by editing a Nodepool CRD.
- Location choice: OVHcloud US customers can use the service in both US regions (HIL and VIN).
We now expose the roadmap of this service, as we do all of our Public Cloud services, publicly in the OVHcloud GitHub repo. When visiting the “containers and orchestration” board of the roadmap you can view all of the backlog, vote, or subscribe to notifications on features and even propose new ones to be considered.
