Kubernetes on Hyper-V


I have a kubernetes cluster running on baremetals which has my apps, monitoring, logging, storage, gateway, certificate management, and many things running. I next wanted to try out the volume snapshots feature, and found out that the directpv does not support it.

I am going to try out rook this time, and instead of resetting my current cluster on baremetal servers, I will try this out on Hyper-V VMs.
