GKE support for node-pools with local SSD boot disk #76553
What would you like to be added:
Support Local SSDs as boot disks in GCE/GKE.
Why is this needed:
Persistent disks do not make sense for preemptible nodes. These nodes regularly get deleted along with their persistent disks thus making these disks effectively non-persistent. Local SSDs fit this use case perfectly, as they are already not persistent and are faster and cheaper because of the lack of network overhead.
As a more far-fetched feature request, it would be nice to also support local HDDs for nodes that don't require low I/O latency and have local HDDs as a feature in general.
Related work: #36499 (the reason I'm posting the issue here).
