PAS and PKS Deployments with Ops Manager

Page last updated:

Warning: Pivotal Container Service (PKS) v1.3 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy.
To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

Ops Manager is a web app that you use to deploy and manage Pivotal Application Service (PAS) and Pivotal Container Service (PKS). This topic explains why Pivotal recommends using separate installations of Ops Manager for PAS and PKS.

For more information about deploying PKS, see Installing PKS.


Ops Manager deploys the PAS and PKS runtime platforms using BOSH. For security reasons, Pivotal does not recommend installing PAS and PKS on the same Ops Manager instance. For even stronger security, Pivotal recommends deploying each Ops Manager instance using a unique cloud provider account.

Tile Configuration and Troubleshooting

Separate installations of Ops Manager allow you to customize and troubleshoot runtime tiles independently. You may choose to configure Ops Manager with different settings for your PAS and PKS deployments.
