Setting up GKE Enterprise on other public clouds

This page provides a quick overview of how to set up GKE Enterprise on other public clouds.

Setting up GKE on AWS

For a complete guide to using GKE on AWS, including cluster setup and administration, see GKE on AWS.

Setting up GKE on Azure

For a complete guide to using GKE on Azure, including cluster setup and administration, see GKE on Azure.

Adding third-party clusters on other public clouds

The GKE Enterprise attached clusters feature lets you add non-managed Kubernetes clusters to your project and use some GKE Enterprise features with them, including viewing them in the Google Cloud console. While you can add any conformant Kubernetes cluster, the following options on other public clouds have been validated by Google:

  • Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS)
  • Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (Microsoft AKS)

For more information and supported versions, see the Attached clusters documentation.

Registering clusters to the fleet

All the clusters you want to use with GKE Enterprise must be registered to your project's fleet.

  • You don't need to do anything to register your multicloud GKE clusters (both on AWS and Azure). As part of the setup process, each cluster that you create automatically runs the Connect Agent and is registered to the fleet.

  • To register a third-party cluster, use the following instructions:

After a cluster is registered, you can authenticate to and manage the cluster from the Google Cloud console or from the command line, as well as use fleet-enabled features.

Enabling GKE Enterprise features

After you set up your project and your GKE clusters, use the following guides to enable additional GKE Enterprise features for your applications. For complete documentation sets for all GKE Enterprise components, including tutorials, reference material, and more, see GKE Enterprise components.
