StorageOS requires an etcd cluster in order to function.

For more information on why etcd is required please see our etcd concepts page and for production recommendations for etcd installations please see our Etcd Operations page.

N.B. StorageOS does not recommend using the Kubernetes etcd cluster for StorageOS installations

Using Etcd with StorageOS

During installation of StorageOS the kvBackend parameters of the StorageOS operator are used to specify the address of the etcd cluster. See the StorageOS cluster operator configuration examples for more information.
