The latest Kubernetes releases, 1.22.1 and 1.21.4, are available on SKS.
With the latest release we also stopped supporting version 1.20.9 and previous. Only the latest two minor versions are supported from now on.
The new Debian 11 (Bullseye) Template has been released this week on the Exoscale platform.
"Bullseye" has been recently released by the Debian project after more than 2 years of development. It will be supported for the next 5 years by the Debian Team.
Additionally, the new Rocky Linux Template (Linux RedHat) has been released this week. Rocky Linux is the successor of the CentOS templates.
Like with other Exoscale official templates, Bullseye & Rocky Linux have cloud native features such as contextualisation with cloud-init or file system autogrow.
Today we released the Exoscale Flexible Storage Template.
Many available compute instance templates are specifically designed for cloud platforms and instantly available. The drawback is that many of them are based on a single partition and a predefined filesystem chosen by the vendor. This often does not fit with specific customer requirements.
The Exoscale Flexible Storage Template exactly addresses these issues. It empowers users to manage their instance's storage exactly as they need it and will enable to easier resize volumes, create further partitions or optionally implement encryption.
A Flexible Storage instance is easily created by using the Exoscale CLI.
In our documentation we give a detailed guidance on how to use the Exoscale Flexible Storage Template.
The latest Kubernetes releases, 1.21.3 and 1.20.9, are now available on SKS.
Additionally, we released several new features on our Kubernetes offering:
Dedicated hypervisor support for nodepools: Users can run SKS nodepools on dedicated hypervisors by specifying the hypervisor group in a new "deploy-target" parameter on nodepools. This feature is also available for regular instance pools (not managed by SKS).
Instance prefix: By default, virtual machines (workers) for SKS are named "pool-<first 5 chars of the underlying instance pool id>-<5 random char>". Users can now control the prefix and replace "pool" by something else. This feature enables users to organize machines by name, which makes it easier to work with. It is also available in both nodepools and instance pools.
SKS now supports Kubernetes 1.21.
As part of our lifecycle management commitment, SKS now has the below supportability matrix:
K8S 1.21 brings amongst many features and improvements cronjobs in stable release as well as Immutable Secrets and ConfigMaps.
The Exoscale supported Terraform provider reached version 0.11.0. This version adds a new "exoscale_compute_template" data source and support for managed EIP healthchecking.
