go is your
import path for Go.
For Go development, it is recommended to add the Go import path (
$HOME/go in this example) to your path.
You can build your Ark image locally on the machine where you run your cluster, or you can push it to a private registry. This section covers both workflows.
$REGISTRY environment variable (used in the
Makefile) to push the Heptio Ark images to your own registry. This allows any node in your cluster to pull your locally built image.
In the Ark root directory, to build your container with the tag
To push your image to a registry, use
The following files are automatically generated from the source code:
make update to regenerate files if you make the following changes:
Run generate-proto.sh to regenerate files if you make the following changes:

To build for another platform, run
For example, to build for the Mac, run
All binaries are placed in

Makefile has a convenience target,
all-build, that builds the following platforms:
To run unit tests, use
make test. You can also run
make verify to ensure that all generated
files (clientset, listers, shared informers, docs) are up to date.
When running Heptio Ark, you will need to account for the following (all of which are handled in the
To provision a cluster on AWS using Amazon’s official CloudFormation templates, here are two options:
Running the Ark server locally can speed up iterative development. This eliminates the need to rebuild the Ark server image and redeploy it to the cluster with each change.
Set the appropriate environment variable for your cloud provider:
You may create resources on a cluster using our example configurations.
Here is how to setup using an existing cluster in AWS: At the root of the Ark repo:
examples/aws/05-ark-backupstoragelocation.yaml to point to your AWS S3 bucket and region. Note: you can run
aws s3api list-buckets to get the name of all your buckets.
examples/aws/06-ark-volumesnapshotlocation.yaml to point to your AWS region.
Then run the commands below.
00-prereqs.yaml contains all our CustomResourceDefinitions (CRDs) that allow us to perform CRUD operations on backups, restores, schedules, etc. it also contains the
heptio-ark namespace, the
ark ServiceAccount, and a cluster role binding to grant the
ark ServiceAccount the cluster-admin role:
kubectl apply -f examples/common/00-prereqs.yaml
10-deployment.yaml is a sample Ark config resource for AWS:
kubectl apply -f examples/aws/10-deployment.yaml
05-ark-backupstoragelocation.yaml specifies the location of your backup storage, together with the optional
kubectl apply -f examples/aws/05-ark-backupstoragelocation.yaml
kubectl apply -f examples/aws/05-ark-backupstoragelocation.yaml examples/aws/06-ark-volumesnapshotlocation.yaml
ark is in your
PATH or specify the full path.
Set variable for Ark as needed. The variables below can be exported as environment variables or passed as CLI cmd flags:
--kubeconfig: set the path to the kubeconfig file the Ark server uses to talk to the Kubernetes apiserver
--namespace: the set namespace where the Ark server should look for backups, schedules, restores
--log-level: set the Ark server’s log level
--plugin-dir: set the directory where the Ark server looks for plugins
--metrics-address: set the bind address and port where Prometheus metrics are exposed
Start the server:
We have examples of deployments for different cloud providers in
kubectl --namespace=heptio-ark set image deployment/ark ark=$REGISTRY/ark:$VERSION
$VERSION are the values that you built Ark with.
