Kubernetes Quick install

These commands deploy a fully runnable instance of Cells on Kubernetes. Use it to quickly spin off a production-ready environment having high-availability and horizontal scalability at the ready from the get-go

  1. Add the Pydio Cells Helm Chart repository
    $ helm repo add cells https://download.pydio.com/pub/charts/helm

  2. Run the install command
    $ helm install cells cells/cells --namespace cells --create-namespace

  3. The output will tell you how to access your app once the deployment is ready. It can take a few minutes.

Go further

The default helm chart will deploy a Cells instance w/ dependencies but still being capable of running on the smallest of environment such as minikube.

The main parameters required to achieve a production-ready deployment are described below.

Just run the following command in order to install and activate all the parameters defined above :

  1. $ helm update --install cells cells/cells --namespace cells -f values.yaml

With sufficient resource, this will transform your basic non-secured system to a letsencrypt-secured load balancer in front of a highly available and horizontally scalable Cells deployment.

Not sufficient yet ?
