Install Percona Everest using the Quick-Install script


As soon as you create a Kubernetes cluster on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) or Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), you can install Percona Everest.

For more information, see the Prerequisites section.

Before you start

Before running the commands in the Installation section, note that Everest will search for the kubeconfig file in the ~/.kube/config path. If your file is located elsewhere, use the export command below to set the KUBECONFIG environment variable:

export KUBECONFIG=~/.kube/config


  1. To install Percona Everest, run the following command:

    $ curl -sfL "" | bash
