This section is intended for system administrators of installations of dbt Cloud into Enterprise customers' cloud providers. For access to dbt Cloud's on premises offering, please contact our sales team.

dbt Cloud is bundled a Kubernetes appliance that can be automatically installed into a standalone Kubernetes cluster.

dbt Cloud uses a collection of open source technologies called Kubernetes-off-the-shelf (KOTS) to manage installations. Internally, dbt Cloud is a Kubernetes appliance, but you do not need to already use Kubernetes to run it. It supports two different deployment models: installation into an existing Kubernetes cluster, or installation onto a bare Linux instance or VM.
