Kontena Pharos supports a concept of cloud providers. Cloud provider is a module that provides an interface for managing load balancers, nodes (i.e. hosts) and networking routes. Optionally you can also configure the path to the cloud provider specific configurations. For example:
cloud: provider: openstack config: ./cloud-config
The supported configuration options:
provider- specify used cloud provider (default: no cloud provider)
config- path to provider specific cloud configuration (default: no configuration)
Supported Cloud Providers
There are different types of cloud providers support in Pharos.
Naturally we support all Kubernetes "in-tree" cloud providers:
- IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service
- Baidu Cloud Container Engine
Pharos has also built-in support for some cloud providers that are not built-in with Kubernetes:
Naturally any cloud provider support can be deployed via external addon. In this case set the cloud privder as external:
cloud: provider: external
For external providers you need to also ensure kubelet has all the needed feature gates open and you push all needed configurations as part of the custom addon.
