Harvester CSI Driver
The Harvester Container Storage Interface (CSI) Driver provides a CSI interface used by guest Kubernetes clusters in Harvester. It connects to the host cluster and hot-plugs host volumes to the virtual machines (VMs) to provide native storage performance.
- The Kubernetes cluster is built on top of Harvester virtual machines.
- The Harvester virtual machines run as guest Kubernetes nodes are in the same namespace.
Deploying with Harvester RKE2 Node Driver
When spinning up a Kubernetes cluster using Rancher RKE2 node driver, the Harvester CSI driver will be deployed when Harvester cloud provider is selected.
Deploying with Harvester RKE1 Node Driver
Select the external cloud provider option.
Generate addon configuration and add it in the RKE config YAML.
