External Dependencies

Learn about the external dependencies of deployKF and how to configure them.


deployKF has "external dependencies" which are required to run the platform. In this case "external" means non-Kubernetes applications or services (e.g. databases, object stores).

External Versions

By default, we deploy embedded (on-cluster) versions of the external dependencies so that you can get started quickly. However, we recommend connecting to external versions for better performance and reliability.

External Dependency Guides

The following table lists the external dependencies, and how to use an existing version:
