DC/OS Enterprise


Using the DC/OS Enterprise version

DC/OS Enterprise is designed to be configured, deployed, managed, scaled, and upgraded on any cluster of physical or virtual machines. You can install DC/OS in the environment of your choice by using a customized setup file or cloud templates.

Custom Setup File

The DC/OS Enterprise setup file is generated by using specific parameters that are set in your configuration file. This installation file contains a Bash install script and a Docker container that is loaded with everything you need to deploy a customized DC/OS build. The DC/OS setup file can be deployed using these methods:

GUI Installer

The GUI installer provides a simple graphical interface that guides you through the installation of DC/OS. The GUI installer provides a basic installation that is suitable for demonstrations and POCs. A shared SSH key is required for this method.

CLI Installer

The CLI installer provides a guided installation of DC/OS from the command line. With this method you can choose from the complete set of DC/OS configuration options. A shared SSH key is required for this method.

Advanced Installer

The advanced installer provides a scriptable, automatable interface to integrate with your preferred configuration management system. With this installation method, you package the DC/OS distribution yourself and connect to every node manually to run the DC/OS installation commands. This installation method is recommended if you want to integrate with an existing system or if you don’t have SSH access to your cluster.

Cloud Templates

DC/OS offers configurable cloud provisioning templates for AWS that manage a DC/OS installation on virtual machines. The DC/OS templates for AWS CloudFormation bring power and flexibility to creating and extending DC/OS clusters. For more information, see the documentation.

Local Installer

The local installers deploy a virtual DC/OS cluster on a local machine. This method is designed for first-time users or developers looking to build services or modify DC/OS. The local installers provide a quick, free way to deploy a virtual cluster on a single machine.
