Planned starting date : 23 November 08AM UTC
Planned End Date : 23 November 4PM UTC
Services concerned : All managed Kubernetes services in all regions, running K8s version 1.16
As stated in an email sent to all Kubernetes 1.16 users early October, all clusters running Kubernetes 1.16 at this time will be forced upgraded.
We strongly encourage you to upgrade to a supported version (1.20 or higher) before that date.
The Kubernetes release cycle is quarterly, and we will offer new minor versions during the quarter when they are available, and we will support the three (3) versions currently supported by the Kubernetes project.
When the quarter is over, we will remove support and you will not be able to install these versions for a semester. Finally, we will force an upgrade, thirty (30) days after a service email has been sent.
The whole policy can be found here https://docs.ovh.com/gb/en/kubernetes/eos-eol-policies/
to help you anticipate and prepare for the transition to the newest versions of Kubernetes.
