When installing DKP, the first step is to determine the infrastructure on which you want to deploy.

For example, you can:

  • Install on a public cloud infrastructure, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), GCP or Azure.

  • Install on an internal network, on-premises environment, with a physical or virtual infrastructure.

  • Install on an air-gapped edge environment.

DKP is a tool for provisioning Kubernetes clusters with a suite of pre-selected Cloud Native Computing Foundation CNCF and community-contributed tools. By combining a native Kubernetes cluster as its foundation with a default set of cluster extensions, DKP provides a complete out-of-the-box solution for organizations that want to deploy production-ready Kubernetes.

After your environment is chosen, you download DKP, setup a cluster with the Konvoy component, and then install the Kommander component in order to access the dashboard through the UI.

For information about installing on a specific provider, see Advanced Konvoy Configuration.
