CORD is distributed as a set of containers that can run on pretty much any Kubernetes environment. It is your choice how to install Kubernetes, although this section describes automation scripts we have found useful.
Note: M-CORD is the exception since its components still depend on OpenStack, which is in turn deployed as a set of Kubernetes containers using the openstack-helm project. Successfully installing the OpenStack Helm charts requires some additional system configuration besides just installing Kubernetes and Helm. You can find more informations about this in the OpenStack Support installation section.
