Known Issues

  • BET-768: On the Azure cloud, the choice of Availability Zones (AZ) may be ignored if the selected AZs do not support the requested VM size. Non-Zoned VMs are created in such cases without a warning to the user.
Spectro Cloud adopts relevant security best practices for operating systems, Kubernetes components, and cloud environments. All Spectro Cloud container images are scanned for CVEs before a release. While Spectro Cloud takes ownership of securing the cluster infrastructure, there may be additional 3rd party integrations installed on the Kubernetes clusters provisioned. Security of such 3rd party integrations, including their container images and associated configurations, is the responsibility of the provider.
