Additional Kubernetes Tools

Vultr Cloud Controller Manager

The Vultr Cloud Controller Manager (CCM) connects Vultr features to your Kubernetes cluster. The CCM monitors the node's state and assigns their IP addresses. The CCM automatically deploys managed Load Balancers as needed for your Kubernetes Load Balancer/Ingress services.

Vultr Container Storage Interface

Create persistent volumes for Kubernetes! The Container Storage Interface (CSI) Driver connects your Kubernetes cluster with Vultr’s high-speed block storage.

Condor

Condor is a self-managed solution that allows you to manage and configure the control plane and other components as you want.

How much does the Vultr Kubernetes Engine cost?

The Vultr Kubernetes Engine includes the managed control plane free of charge. You pay for the Worker Nodes, Load Balancers, and Block Storage resources you deploy. Worker nodes and Load Balancers run on Vultr cloud server instances of your choice with 2 GB of RAM or more. See our hourly rates.

Can I deploy a Bare Metal server to my Kubernetes cluster?

Kubernetes uses Vultr cloud servers. It does not support Bare Metal servers.

Does VKE come with an ingress controller?

No, VKE does not come with an ingress controller preconfigured. Vultr Load Balancers will work with any ingress controller you deploy. Popular ingress controllers include Nginx, HAProxy, and Traefik.

What is the minimum size block storage volume I can deploy to a VKE cluster?

VKE clusters require a minimum of 10GB per block storage volume.
