# Add AWS credentials with AdministratorAccess

To deploy Kestra in your own AWS infrastructure with Restack, you will need to add your credentials as the next step.

Make sure that this account has AdministratorAccess. This is how Restack can ensure an end-to-end cluster creation and cluster management process.

  1. Navigate to Clusters in the left-hand navigation menu.
  2. Select the Credentials tab.
  3. Click Add credential.
    add-credentials
  4. Give a suitable title to your credentials for managing them later.
  5. Enter your AWS Access Key ID and AWS Secret Access key. (opens new window)
  6. Click Add credential.
    add-aws-credentials

# One-click cluster creation with Restack

TIP

Running your application on a Kubernetes cluster lets you deploy, scale and monitor the application reliably.

Once you have added your credentials:

  1. Navigate to the Clusters tab on the same page and click on Create cluster.
    create-cluster
  2. Give a suitable name to your cluster.
  3. Select the region you want to deploy the cluster in.
  4. Select the AWS credentials you added in the previous step.
    cluster-details

The cluster creation process will start automatically. Once the cluster is ready, you will get an email on the email id connected with your account.

Creating a cluster is a one-time process. From here you can add other open source tools or multiple instances of Kestra in the same cluster.

Any application you deploy in your cluster will be accessible via a free restack domain.
Contact the Restack team via chat to set a custom domain for your Kestra instances.

# Deploy multiple instances of Kestra

Restack makes it easier to deploy multiple instances of Kestra on the same or multiple clusters.

So you can test the latest version before upgrading or have a dedicated instance for development and for production.
