Using the VCP As of the last part in the series we have a fully up and running k8s cluster with the vSphere Cloud Provider installed! Let’s make sure it works and is provisioning storage for us by deploying a StorageClass and a test app. Prerequisites Tools I am using macOS, so will be using […]

Firstly, download the .deb package from my.vmware.com and upload it to the VIO management appliance – I used FileZilla for this, the username is […]
