On this page you will install the Stackable Operator for Trino as well as the commons and secret operator which are required by all Stackable Operators.

Stackable Operators

There are two ways to install Stackable Operators:

  1. Using stackablectl

  2. Using Helm


The stackablectl command line tool is the recommended way to interact with operators and dependencies. Follow the installation steps for your platform if you choose to work with stackablectl.

After you have installed stackablectl, run the following command to install all operators necessary for Trino:

stackablectl operator install \
  commons=23.7.0 \
  secret=23.7.0 \

The tool will show

[INFO ] Installing commons operator in version 23.7.0
[INFO ] Installing secret operator in version 23.7.0
[INFO ] Installing trino operator in version 23.7.0
Consult the Quickstart to learn more about how to use stackablectl.


You can also use Helm to install the operators. Add the Stackable Helm repository:

helm repo add stackable-stable

Then install the Stackable Operators:

helm install --wait commons-operator stackable-stable/commons-operator --version 23.7.0
helm install --wait secret-operator stackable-stable/secret-operator --version 23.7.0
helm install --wait trino-operator stackable-stable/trino-operator --version 23.7.0

Helm will deploy the operators in a Kubernetes Deployment and apply the CRDs for the Trino service (as well as the CRDs for the required operators). You are now ready to deploy Trino in Kubernetes.

Optional installation steps

Some Trino connectors like hive or iceberg work together with the Apache Hive metastore and S3 buckets. For these components extra steps are required.

  • a Stackable Hive metastore

  • an accessible S3 bucket

    • an end-point, and access- and secret-keys

    • data in the bucket (we use the Iris dataset here)

  • the following are optional

S3 bucket

Please refer to the S3 provider.

Hive operator

Please refer to the Hive Operator docs. Both Hive and Trino need the same S3 authentication.

OPA operator

Please refer to the OPA Operator docs.
