Eclipse Ditto


Eclipse Ditto™ is a technology in the IoT implementing a software pattern called “digital twins”. A digital twin is a virtual, cloud based, representation of his real world counterpart (real world “Things”, e.g. devices like sensors, smart heating, connected cars, smart grids, EV charging stations, …).

This chart uses eclipse/ditto-XXX containers to run Ditto inside Kubernetes.


  • Has been tested on Kubernetes 1.11+

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name eclipse-ditto, run the following command (tested with Helm v3):

If you experience high resource consumption (either CPU or RAM or both), you can limit the resource usage by specifing resource limits. This can be done individually for each single component. Here is an example how to limit CPU to 0.25 Cores and RAM to 512MiB for the connectivity service:

helm upgrade eclipse-ditto . --install --set connectivity.resources.limits.cpu=0.25 --set connectivity.resources.limits.memory=512Mi
