GP2-encrypted is now the default storageclass

We’re making the use of encryption at rest our default. For this we switched our default PV storageclass on K8s from gp2 to gp2-encrypted.

So if you will create a PVC without specifying the volume type K8s will provision a gp2-encrypted volume instead of the gp2 volume right now. You can still provision a gp2 volume but then you will have to specify that in your claim.

You don’t need to take any further actions regarding this matter. We’ll progressively roll out the update on all setups.
