We are bringing the best of Tectonic to Red Hat OpenShift to build the most secure, hybrid Kubernetes application platform.

AWS: Installation


Check the [requirements doc][install-aws-requirements] to see what's needed. The short version is if you already have an IAM account and associated SSH key, you should be ready to proceed.

Step 1: Download and Run Installer

Make sure a current version of either the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser is set as the default browser on the workstation where Installer will run.

Download the Tectonic installer.

wget https://releases.tectonic.com/releases/tectonic_1.5.1-tectonic.1.tar.gz
tar xzvf tectonic-1.5.1-tectonic.1.tar.gz
cd tectonic/tectonic-installer

Run the Tectonic Installer.


Where $PLATFORM is one of: linux, darwin or windows.

Step 2: Install

Be sure to read the installation requirements - which include a section on privileges for your AWS credentials - as well as the known issues section in the Troubleshooting guide before you install.

Follow the on-screen instructions to provision your cluster. This process should take about 10-15 minutes.

Once complete you should be able to access your Tectonic Console.

If you encounter any errors check the troubleshooting documentation.

Step 3: Tectonic Console

Viewing a node in the Tectonic Console

Now you are ready to access Tectonic Console, configure kubectl, and deploy your first application to the cluster. A kubeconfig with the appropriate configuration for kubectl is available for download in the Tectonic Console.

For those new to Tectonic and Kubernetes, the usage guide contains tutorials and guides demonstrating how to get started.
