# Deployment on Kubernetes

The recommended deployment environment for production workloads is Kubernetes (opens new window).
We provide a Helm Chart (opens new window) in order to deploy your cluster.

# Quick Start

helm repo add kestra https://helm.kestra.io/
helm install kestra

# Details

You can change the default behaviour and configuring your cluster changing the defaults values (opens new window).

By default, charts will only deploy one kestra standalone service (all kestra servers in only one pod) with only 1 replica.

You can also deploy each server independently , using these values:

      enabled: true
      enabled: true
      enabled: true
      enabled: true
      enabled: true
      enabled: true

The charts could also deploy all needed services:

  • Zookeeper using kafka.enabled: true
  • Kafka cluster using kafka.enabled: true
  • Elasticsearch cluster using elasticsearch.enabled: true
  • Minio standalone using minio.enabled: true
  • Postgres using postgresql.enabled: true

By default, we enable minio & postgres to have a working version.


All services (kafka, elasticsearch, zookeeper, minio, postgresql) are deployed using unsecured configurations (no authentification, no tls, ...). When installing for a production environnement, you need to secure all these services and adapt all service configurations to be production ready.

The most important values to adapt are the configuration files, including the following values:

  • configuration: used to apply the entire configuration files from Kestra
  • secrets: this will be merged with configuration but kept as secret on your k8s cluster.
