3.3.3 The Helm Module

Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes. Helm simplifies the task of deploying and managing software inside Kubernetes clusters. Helm uses charts to manage the packages that it can deploy.

The Helm module for Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment installs Helm into a Kubernetes module (cluster). The Helm module is used by the Platform API Server to install additional modules including the Istio and Prometheus modules.

Note

In this release, the Helm module should only be used in the context of an Istio module deployment.
