Install Milvus Cluster

This topic describes how to install Milvus standalone with Docker Compose or on Kubernetes. We recommend reading Before you Begin prior to your installation.

You can also build Milvus from source code at GitHub.

1. Download an installation file

Run the following command to download milvus-cluster-docker-compose.yml and save it as docker-compose.yml.

$ wget -O docker-compose.yml

You can also click here to download the file.

Data is stored in the volumes folder according to the default configuration in milvus-cluster-docker-compose.yml. To change the folder to store data, edit docker-compose.yml or run $ export DOCKER_VOLUME_DIRECTORY=.

2. Start Milvus

$ docker-compose up -d
Docker Compose is now in the Docker CLI, try `docker compose up`
Creating milvus-etcd   ... done
Creating milvus-minio  ... done
Creating milvus-pulsar ... done
Creating milvus-proxy      ... done
Creating milvus-rootcoord  ... done
Creating milvus-indexcoord ... done
Creating milvus-querycoord ... done
Creating milvus-datacoord  ... done
Creating milvus-querynode  ... done
Creating milvus-indexnode  ... done
Creating milvus-datanode   ... done

After Milvus cluster starts, 11 running docker containers appear including three infrastructure services and eight Milvus services.

$ sudo docker ps
