Before getting started with Percona Everest, do the following:

  1. Install curl.

  2. Set up a Kubernetes cluster.

    Percona Everest assists with installing all the necessary operators and required packages, but does not deploy a Kubernetes cluster.

    We recommend setting up Percona Everest on the Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) or Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).

    Create EKS cluster Create GKE cluster

  3. Verify that you have access to the Kubernetes cluster that you want to use with Everest. By default, Everest uses the kubeconfig file available under ~/.kube/config.

    To verify access to the Kubernetes cluster, run the following command:

    kubectl get nodes
    Expected output
    NAME                                    STATUS   ROLES    AGE   VERSION
    gke-<name>-default-pool-75d48bfc-bx8g   Ready    <none>   11h   v1.26.7-gke.500
    gke-<name>-default-pool-75d48bfc-c2df   Ready    <none>   11h   v1.26.7-gke.500
    gke-<name>-default-pool-75d48bfc-zl7k   Ready    <none>   11h   v1.26.7-gke.500
