Installing & Using KumoScale Operators with a Kubernetes Cluster

This section applies only to users who are using KumoScale software with an existing Kubernetes cluster. In this case, the KumoScale Operator Software is delivered as a binary container for Kubernetes deployment. KumoScale software enables you to configure and manage provisioning using Custom Resource files with KumoScale operators. We support any distribution of Kubernetes versions 1.15, 1.16-1.19, and 1.20- 1.22  as long as you follow the official guidelines and best practices for installation and deployment.
