Warning: Pivotal Container Service (PKS)
v1.4 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.
This topic describes the prerequisites and resource requirements for installing Enterprise Pivotal Container Service (Enterprise PKS) on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Before you install Enterprise PKS, you must install one of the following:
- Ops Manager v2.4.2 or later
- Ops Manager v2.5.x
- Ops Manager v2.6.x
Note: You use Ops Manager to install and configure Enterprise PKS. Each version of Ops Manager supports multiple versions of Enterprise PKS. To confirm that your Ops Manager version supports the version of Enterprise PKS that you install, see Enterprise PKS Release Notes.
Note: The topics below provide the Terraform procedures for deploying Ops Manager on AWS, not the manual procedures. The Terraform procedures are the currently supported path for deploying Ops Manager on AWS for use with Enterprise PKS.
To install a compatible Ops Manager version, follow the instructions in the table below:
|Ops Manager 2.4|
|Ops Manager 2.5|
|Ops Manager 2.6|
Installing Ops Manager and Enterprise PKS requires the following virtual machines (VMs):
|VM Name||VM Type||Default VM Count|
|Pivotal Container Service||m4.large ^*||1|
Storage Requirements for Large Numbers of Pods
If you expect the cluster workload to run a large number of pods continuously, then increase the size of persistent disk storage allocated to the the Pivotal Container Service VM as follows:
|Number of Pods||Storage (Persistent Disk) Requirement ^*|
|1,000 pods||20 GB|
|5,000 pods||100 GB|
|10,000 pods||200 GB|
|50,000 pods||1,000 GB|
Kubernetes Cluster ResourcesEach Kubernetes cluster provisioned through Enterprise PKS deploys the VMs listed below. If you deploy more than one Kubernetes cluster, you must scale your allocated resources appropriately.
|VM Name||Number||CPU Cores||RAM||Ephemeral Disk||Persistent Disk|
|master||1||2||4 GB||32 GB||5 GB|
|worker||1||2||4 GB||32 GB||50 GB|
