Deploy on Kubernetes with Helm

The mimir-distributed Helm chart deploys Grafana Enterprise Metrics (GEM) in microservices mode when enabled via a feature flag. The chart is available in the grafana/helm-charts Helm repository, while its source code is located in the grafana/mimir repository. This chart is our recommended approach for deploying GEM on Kubernetes, as it encodes Grafana Labs’ best practices for running GEM.

The GEM Helm chart includes several example values files. The default is used for testing GEM out in a non-production environment using a small test MinIO deployment for object storage. The small.yaml or large.yaml values files are configurations recommended for production use with production-class object storage. Further instructions and documentation are available in the chart’s documentation.
