Version: Operator 3.3.0

Installation Options

note

For ARM architecture, make sure the installed OLM version is 0.25.0 or later.

Aerospike recommends installing with the Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM). You can also use Helm charts to install the Operator.

Method 1: Install the Operator using Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM)

We recommend using Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM) to run and manage the Aerospike Kubernetes Operator in production environments.

This applies to RedHat OpenShift clusters as well, since OLM is installed by default on an OpenShift cluster.

Follow the steps here to install the Aerospike Kubernetes Operator using OLM.

Method 2: Install the Operator using Helm Charts

In some cases, particularly if you use Helm charts to deploy Aerospike clusters directly rather than relying on the Operator, you may need to use the Helm chart to also install the Operator.

tip

There are some mandatory, manual, steps if installing this way. Please ensure you need this behavior and follow the instructions closely.
