Clusters, as infrastructure elements, usually have to meet various requirements.
A production cluster, unlike a development one, has higher requirements for reliability. In a production cluster, frequent component updates and changes are undesirable. All the cluster components must be thoroughly tested for stable and reliable operation.
Deckhouse uses five release channels which you can soft-switch between using the deckhouse module: just specify the desired release channel in the module configuration.
Note! The cluster does not use any release channel.
