This repository contains the Kubernetes cloud-controller-manager for vSphere.
This project replaces the deprecated in-tree vSphere cloud provider located within the Kubernetes repository. If you want to create issues or pull requests for the in-tree cloud provider, please go to the Kubernetes repository.
There is ongoing work for refactoring cloud providers out of the upstream repository. For more details, please check this KEP.
The vSphere cloud provider is released with a specific semantic version
MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH that correlates with the Kubernetes upstream version. Compatibility with a new Kubernetes version requires upgrading existing cloud provider components since compatibility is ONLY guaranteed between a specific release and its corresponding Kubernetes version.
In the future, the major and minor versions of releases should be equivalent to the compatible upstream Kubernetes release, and the patch version is used for bug fixes pertaining to specific Kubernetes releases. See the external cloud provider versioning KEP for more details.

The project uses Go modules and:
It is also possible to build the cloud provider with Docker in order to ensure a clean build environment:
$ git clone https://github.com/kubernetes/cloud-provider-vsphere && \ make -C cloud-provider-vsphere build-with-docker

Please see CONTRIBUTING.md for instructions on how to contribute.
Out of tree cloud providers no longer provide native storage support. Instead, a Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver is required. The vSphere CSI driver is located here.
