  1. Create an Alibaba Cloud Container Service Kubernetes cluster using the official guide.
  2. Follow the Helm installation guide to finish installing Ververica Platform. Helm itself is already pre-installed on every Container Service Kubernetes cluster.
  3. From Apache Flink® 1.8 onward the official Ververica Platform Apache Flink® docker images already include support for Alibaba Cloud’s Object Storage Service (OSS) for checkpoint & savepoint storage out-of-the-box.
