Supported Kubernetes Version
Deploying Clusters Versions
The latest supported Kubernetes versions for DKP are listed below. In DKP 2.6, the Kubernetes version installed by default is 1.26.6. The newest and oldest Kubernetes versions used with DKP must be within one minor version.
Latest supported Kubernetes version is at 1.26.6 for deploying clusters
Other Kubernetes versions are supported at 1.25.11 for deploying clusters in EKS
Kubernetes 1.26.6 enables you to benefit from the latest features and security fixes in upstream Kubernetes. This release comes with approximately 40 enhancements that you can benefit from like Service internal tracking policy, Kubelet credential provider, among others.

Default storage providers in DKP
When deploying DKP using a supported cloud provisioner (AWS, Azure, GCP), DKP automatically configures native storage drivers for the target platform. In addition, DKP deploys a default StorageClass for https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/storage/dynamic-provisioning/ creation. The table below lists the driver and default StorageClass for each supported cloud provisioner.
Default Storage Class
Cloud Director (VCD)
DKP uses the local static provisioner as the default storage provider for Pre-provisioned clusters. However,
localvolumeprovisioner is not suitable for production use. You should use a Kubernetes CSI compatible storage that is suitable for production.
You can choose from any of the storage options available for Kubernetes. To disable the default that Konvoy deploys, set the default StorageClass
localvolumeprovisioner as non-default. Then set your newly created StorageClass to be the default by following the commands in the Kubernetes documentation called Changing the Default Storage Class.
Deploying a Cluster in FIPS mode
In order to create a cluster in FIPS mode, we must inform the bootstrap controllers of the appropriate image repository and version tags of the official D2iQ FIPS builds of Kubernetes.
