On Premises

Pachyderm is built on Kubernetes and can be backed by an object store of your choice. As such, Pachyderm can run on any on premise platforms/frameworks that support Kubernetes, a persistent disk/volume, and an object store.


  1. kubectl
  2. pachctl


The Kubernetes docs have instructions for deploying Kubernetes in a variety of on-premise scenarios. We recommend following one of these guides to get Kubernetes running on premise.

Object Store

Once you have Kubernetes up and running, deploying Pachyderm is a matter of supplying Kubernetes with a JSON/YAML manifest to create the Pachyderm resources. This includes providing information that Pachyderm will use to connect to a backing object store.

For on premise deployments, we recommend using Minio as a backing object store. However, at this point, you could utilize any backing object store that has an S3 compatible API. To create a manifest template for your on premise deployment, run:

pachctl deploy custom --persistent-disk google --object-store s3 <persistent disk name> <persistent disk size> <object store bucket> <object store id> <object store secret> <object store endpoint> --static-etcd-volume=${STORAGE_NAME} --dry-run > deployment.json

Then you can modify deployment.json to fit your environment and kubernetes deployment. Once, you have your manifest ready, deploying Pachyderm is as simple as:

kubectl create -f deployment.json
