This page documents setting up and running the Arvados on Kubernetes
Helm chart on
This Helm chart does not retain any state after it is deleted. An Arvados cluster created with this Helm chart is entirely ephemeral, and all data stored on the cluster will be deleted when it is shut down. This will be fixed in a future version.
Follow the instructions at https://kubernetes.io/docs/setup/minikube/
Test the connection:
$ kubectl get nodes
helm by running
$ helm ls
There should be no errors. The command will return nothing.
Clone the repository and nagivate to the
$ git clone https://github.com/arvados/arvados-k8s.git $ cd arvados-k8s/charts/arvados
All Arvados services will be accessible on Minikube’s IP address. This will be a local IP address, you can see what it is by running
$ minikube ip 192.168.39.15
Generate self-signed SSL certificates for the Arvados services:
$ ./cert-gen.sh `minikube ip`
values.yaml file contains a number of variables that can be modified. At a minimum, review and/or modify the values for
adminUserEmail adminUserPassword superUserSecret anonymousUserSecret
Now start the Arvados cluster:
$ helm install arvados . --set externalIP=`minikube ip`
And update the Kubernetes services to have the Minikube IP as their ‘external’ IP:
At this point, you can use kubectl to see the Arvados cluster boot:
$ kubectl get pods $ kubectl get svc
After a few minutes, you can access Arvados Workbench at the Minikube IP address:
with the username and password specified in the
Alternatively, use the Arvados cli tools or SDKs. First set the environment variables:
$ export ARVADOS_API_TOKEN=<superUserSecret from values.yaml> $ export ARVADOS_API_HOST=<MINIKUBE IP>:444 $ export ARVADOS_API_HOST_INSECURE=true
Test access with:
$ arv user current
If you make changes to the Helm chart (e.g. to
values.yaml), you can reload Arvados with
$ helm upgrade arvados .
