Deployment strategy change

Currently, the update strategy is configured as RollingUpdate where this type of deployment typically waits for new pods to become ready via a readiness check before scaling down the old components. This is not possible when a persistent volume is attached to a pod and it results in a worker node hung during the unmount of the pv from the existing pod and the mount of the same pv to the newly created pod.

The desired result is to have the ability to change the update strategy to OnDelete.

The same request applies to all ApiConnect's component (Management, Developer Portal, Gateway, Analytics)
