Prerequisites

The following topics describe how to install and configure the software necessary to run Pivotal Greenplum for Kubernetes:

  • Kubernetes Node Configuration describes the Linux kernel configuration requirements for each Kubernetes node that is used in a Pivotal Greenplum cluster. These requirements are common to all Pivotal Greenplum deployments, regardless of which Kubernetes environment you use.

  • Minikube describes software requirements for deploying to Minikube. A Minikube installation enables you to demonstrate Pivotal Greenplum on a single-node system (your local machine), using minimal resources. It is not supported for production deployments.

  • VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated (TKGI) Edition running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) describes software and configuration requirements for VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated (TKGI) Edition on Google Cloud Platform. This is a recommended environment for evaluating, testing, or running workloads on Pivotal Greenplum.

  • Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) describes software and configuration requirements for GKE on Google Cloud Platform. This is a recommended environment for evaluating, testing, and running workloads on Pivotal Greenplum.
