Kubernetes Node Operating System

Kubermatic supports a multitude of operating systems. One of the unique features of Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform is the possibility to recombine different machine deployments and operating systems even in one cluster. If you intend to use more than one type of OS and/or CRI in one K8s cluster, please consult with Kubermatic Support.

The following operating systems are currently supported by Kubermatic:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 and 22.041
  • RHEL beginning with 8.0 (support is cloud provider-specific)
  • Flatcar (Stable channel)
  • Rocky Linux beginning with 8.0
  • Ubuntu LTS beginning with 18.04
  • CentOS beginning with 7.4 excluding stream versions
  • Amazon Linux 2
  • SLES beginning with 15.0 (only on AWS)
