Hi, I'm really curious about Harvester.
I understand it is a HCI based on a Kubernetes on bare metal.
What if I only want a Kubernetes on bare metal? Is Harvester usable as a kubernetes cluster? Intermediate product?
My use case: building a CI/CD platform with obsolete hardware (#greenit)

Although Harvester has Kubernetes as its bare-metal control plane, we don’t recommend using the Kuernetes directly. The recommended approach is to import Harvester to Rancher manager and host guest clusters inside VMs. e.g., to host an RKE2 cluster: https://docs.harvesterhci.io/v1.1/rancher/node/rke2-cluster
For pure Kubernetes on baremetal, I’d suggest RKE2 or k3s.

Thanks for answer.
AFAIK, RKE2 or k3s require underlying OS. I'm looking for a solution like k3OS where I do not have to manage the OS as it is part of the « product ».
I saw references to Kairos or Elemental... I will read documentation.
