OpenEBS is an open source storage platform that provides persistent and containerized block storage for DevOps and container environments.

OpenEBS can be deployed on any Kubernetes cluster - either in cloud, on-premise or developer laptop (minikube). OpenEBS itself is deployed as just another container on your cluster, and enables storage services that can be designated on a per pod, application, cluster or container level.


This chart bootstraps OpenEBS deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.


  • Kubernetes 1.7.5+ with RBAC enabled
  • iSCSI PV support in the underlying infrastructure

Installing OpenEBS

helm install --namespace openebs stable/openebs

Installing OpenEBS with the release name my-release:

helm install --name `my-release` --namespace openebs stable/openebs

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

helm ls --all
helm delete `my-release`


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the OpenEBS chart and their default values.

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install.

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

helm install --name `my-release` -f values.yaml stable/openebs

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml
