CloudBees Core on Pivotal Container Service (PKS) installation guide

This document explains the cluster requirements, points you to the Pivotal documentation you will need to create a cluster and explains how to install CloudBees Core in your Kubernetes cluster.

The PKS cluster requirements must be satisfied before CloudBees Core can be installed.

PKS Cluster Requirements

For details about supported platforms for CloudBees Core on modern cloud platforms, such as supported Kubernetes, Helm, and NFS versions, refer to Supported platforms for CloudBees Core on modern cloud platforms.

The CloudBees Core installer requires:

  • On your local computer or a bastion host:

    • Kubernetes client 1.x, starting with 1.10, installed and configured (kubectl)

    • PKS CLI (See Installing the PKS CLI for instructions)

  • A PKS cluster running Kubernetes 1.x, starting with 1.10, as long as it is actively supported by the Kubernetes distribution provider and generally available

    • Cluster nodes configured with at least 2 CPU and 4 GB of memory.

    • Must have network access to container images (public Docker Hub or a private Docker Registry)

  • The NGINX Ingress Controller installed in the cluster (v0.9.0 minimum)

    • Load balancer configured and pointing to the NGINX Ingress Controller

    • A DNS record that points to the NGINX Ingress Controllers Load balancer
