How to Deploy Pachyderm On-Premises #

1. Install Pachyderm via Helm #

helm repo add pach
helm repo update

2. Add Storage classes to Helm Values #

Update your Helm values file to include the storage classes you are going to use:

  storageClass: MyStorageClass
  size: 10Gi

    storageClass: MyStorageClass
    size: 10Gi

3. Size & Configure Object Store #

  1. Determine the endpoint of your object store, for example minio-server:9000.
  2. Choose a unique name for the bucket you will dedicate to Pachyderm.
  3. Create a new access key ID and secret key for Pachyderm to use when accessing the object store.
  4. Update the Pachyderm Helm values file with the endpoint, bucket name, access key ID, and secret key.
    backend: minio
      endpoint: minio-server:9000
      bucket: pachyderm-bucket
      id: pachyderm-access-key
      secret: pachyderm-secret-key
      secure: false

You can update your Helm values file using the following command:

helm upgrade pachyderm pachyderm/pachyderm -f values.yml
