Cloud Container Engine – New Kubernetes 1.19 version and migration tool

Flexible Engine’s container management service: Cloud Container Engine now supports 1.19.10 kubernetes clusters. As of today you’ll be able to create kubernetes clusters in version 1.19, or upgrade your version 1.17 clusters to 1.19 with our provided migration tool.

1.1 New Features Feature Description and Impact Constraints/Comments
1 CCE cluster support Kubernetes version 1.19.10 New Kubernetes version 1.19.10 CentOS 7.6 uses kernel 3.10.0-1127.19.1.el7.x86_64.
EulerOS 2.5 uses kernel 3.10.0-862.14.1.5.h470.eulerosv2r7.x86_64
2 Support clusters upgrade from Kubernetes 1.17 to 1.19

As for previous CCE versions, CCE support cluster versions upgrade using standard “Replace upgrade” feature:

  • The latest worker node image is used to reset the node OS.
  • This is the fastest upgrade mode and requires few manual interventions.
Service pods and networks will be impacted during the upgrade as nodes are replaced

Data or configurations on the node will be lost, and services will be interrupted for a period of time.

  • Upgraded clusters cannot be rolled back. Therefore, perform the upgrade during off-peak hours to minimize the impact on your services.
  • Before upgrading a cluster, learn about the features and differences of each cluster version in Kubernetes Release Notes to avoid exceptions due to the use of an incompatible cluster version.
  • Do not shut down or restart nodes during cluster upgrade. Otherwise, the upgrade fails.
  • Before upgrading a cluster, disable auto scaling policies to prevent node scaling during the upgrade. Otherwise, the upgrade fails.
  • If you locally modify the configuration of a cluster node, the cluster upgrade may fail or the configuration may be lost after the upgrade. Therefore, modify the configurations on the CCE console (cluster or node pool list page) so that they will be automatically inherited during the upgrade.
  • Before upgrading the cluster, check whether the cluster is healthy. If the cluster is abnormal, you can try to rectify the fault. 
To ensure data security, you are advised to back up data before upgrading the cluster. During the upgrade, you are not advised to perform any operations on the cluster.
   

This new version of CCE also introduce a brand new Beta upgrade mode called “in Place Rolling Upgrade”.  It allows users to upgrade their clusters without any service interruption:

  • Kubernetes components, network components, and CCE management components will be upgraded on nodes. 
  • During the upgrade, service pods and networks will not be affected, and all existing nodes are labeled SchedulingDisabled. 
  • After the upgrade is complete, you can use these nodes as normal.

Advantage: Users do not need to migrate services, which ensures service continuity.

An in-place upgrade does not upgrade the node OS. If you want to upgrade the OS, clear the node after the node upgrade is complete and reset the node to upgrade the OS to the new version.

 

NOTE: This feature is currently in Beta mode, if you would like to test this feature, please submit a ticket on our Service Desk. 

3 m6 ECS flavor support

CCE cluster version 1.17 &1.19 now supports m6 flavor ECS as worker nodes

 

4 Support Agency binding by API

Support agency binding when using the API to create nodes

 

5 Pod security policies are enabled in the version 1.19.

By default, the PSP access control component is enabled for clusters of v1.19 and a global default PSP named psp-global is created. You can modify the default policy (but not delete it). You can also create a PSP and bind it to the RBAC configuration.

 

6 Support OIDC authentication.

CCE supports OIDC functionality via IAM. The OIDC protocol-based Enterprise IdP is federated with the IAM for identity authentication. The detailed OIDC authentication process and configuration procedure can be found in https://docs.prod-cloud-ocb.orange-business.com/usermanual/iam/en-us_topic_0274187177.html

 

7 Fix the coredns 1.6.5 upgrade failure.

Previous versions of CoreDNS failed to upgrade to CoreDNS 1.6.5, in this CCE version we fixes the issue.

 

8 Console Optimization

On the job list page can display: the job execution duration, start time, and end time

CCE cronjob, support users modify YAML files in the console and it can synchronize configuration changes, and perform real-time tests.
