You can use a Kubernetes deployment for Burp Suite Enterprise Edition. We provide a Helm chart with the correct field values to meet the minimum system requirements.

Note

We recommend that you only attempt to deploy and manage Burp Suite Enterprise Edition in a Kubernetes environment if you have previous Kubernetes experience.

To deploy Burp Suite Enterprise Edition to Kubernetes, you need a cluster that meets the following requirements:

  • An ingress solution, for example a load balancer or an ingress controller.
  • A PersistentVolumeClaim called <application-name>-pvc that can be shared by all nodes in the namespace where Burp Suite Enterprise Edition is deployed.
  • (Optional) To enable cluster node autoscaling, the cluster-autoscaler must be installed and enabled.
  • An external database that meets our system requirements.

Burp Suite Enterprise Edition can run on an x86-based cluster. There may be additional infrastructure configuration required depending on your Kubernetes environment. Please refer to our Kubernetes support scope and deployment guide.

Container system requirements

We specify the hardware resources for the containers in our Helm chart values file.

Note

Make sure your cluster node type is set appropriately for your environment.

CentOS/RHEL v7.x operating systems are not supported for the cluster worker node.
