How to install Azure Key Vault to Kubernetes (akv2k8s) on Azure AKS
Make sure to check the requirements before installing.
Azure Key Vault is a Microsoft Azure product and Azure Key Vault to Kubernetes (akv2k8s) is most commonly used on Azure AKS, but can also be used outside Azure AKS (see Installing outside Azure AKS).

helm upgrade --install akv2k8s spv-charts/akv2k8s \ --namespace akv2k8s

akv2k8s chart. The old Charts used Helm 2 and the new Chart uses Helm 3. For this reason we still maintain the old charts for version 1.1, but we will not maintain future versions after 1.1. Those will only be available in the
