Deprecation Notice

Cloud providers in this directory are deprecated and will be removed in favor of external (a.k.a out-of-tree) providers. Existing providers in this directory (a.k.a in-tree providers) should only make small incremental changes as needed and avoid large refactors or new features. New providers seeking to support Kubernetes should follow the out-of-tree model as specified in the Running Kubernetes Cloud Controller Manager docs. For more information on the future of Kubernetes cloud providers see KEP-0002 and KEP-0013.

Cloud Providers in this directory will continue to be actively developed or maintained and supported at their current level of support as a longer-term solution evolves. See the following enhancement issues to track the status of out-of-tree support for cloud providers in this repo:
