Install Portworx with Terraform


This document presents a non-Kubernetes method of installing a Portworx cluster. Please refer to the Portworx on Kubernetes page if you want to install Portworx on Kubernetes.

Installing

To install with Terraform, please use the Terraform Portworx Module

Upgrading Portworx

If you have installed Portworx with Terraform, Portworx needs to be upgraded through the CLI on a node-by-node basis. Please see the upgrade instructions

Scaling

A Portworx cluster is uniquely defined by its kvdb and clusterID parameters. As long as these are consistent, a cluster can easily scale up in Terraform, by using the same kvdb and clusterID, and then increasing the instance count.
