Supported environments

The supported environments page lists browsers, operating systems, clients, deployment options, and component requirements, which are tested and supported for compatibility with Camunda 8.

If the particular technology is not listed, we cannot resolve issues caused by the usage of that unlisted technology.

You may raise a feature request that will be evaluated by our product teams to provide official support from Camunda, or you can make a help request to work with Consulting services.

Recommendations are denoted with [recommended], however, other listed options are supported as well.

Minimum versions

The versions listed on this page are the minimum version required if appended with a +.

Pay attention to where the + falls, as most of our dependencies follow semantic versioning (semver), where x.y.z correspond to MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH. Higher or more recent versions will be compatible with Camunda, with respect to semver.

For example, 1.2+ means support for the minor version 2, and any higher minors (1.3, 1.4, etc.) and patches (1.2.1, 1.2.2, etc.), but not majors, like 2.x.

Camunda 8 Self-Managed

We recommend running Camunda 8 Self-Managed in a Kubernetes environment. We provide officially supported Helm Charts for this. Please follow the Installation Guide to learn more about installation possibilities.

Deployment options

With the right configuration, Camunda 8 Self-Managed can be deployed on any Certified Kubernetes distribution (cloud or on-premise). However, we officially test and support a specific list of platforms.

The following are tested and supported deployment options for Kubernetes, Docker, and manual installation:

Helm chart compatibility

Ensure the Camunda component versions are compatible with the Helm chart version as defined in the matrix.

Sizing

The sizing of a Camunda 8 installation depends on various influencing factors. Ensure to determine these factors, and conduct benchmarking to validate an appropriate environment size for your test, integration, or production environments.

Volume performance

As a minimum requirement, the persistent volumes for Zeebe should use volumes with an absolute minimum of 1,000 IOPS. NFS or other types of network storage volumes are not supported.

To ensure an appropriate sizing, determine your influencing factors (e.g., throughput), and conduct benchmarking to validate an appropriate environment sizing.

For details on typical volume type usage, refer to the following examples specific to cloud service providers:
