Kubernetes as a Service on WAW3-2 cloud now with fast NVMe storage master nodes

Kubernetes clusters can be provisioned on WAW3-2 cloud via OpenStack Magnum, in a platform as a service model. We have now added the capability of provisioning master nodes of these clusters with fast NVMe storage. Thus, the etcd key-value store is deployed and accessible with low latency.

This scenario is especially relevant for data-intensive applications on clusters with high load and multiple K8s resources to ensure robust operations. To apply the feature, create a cluster with HMAD flavor master nodes, and add a relevant label during cluster creation in the Horizon GUI.
