Tower uses the concept of Compute Environments to define the execution platform where a pipeline will run.

It supports launching pipelines into a growing number of cloud and on-premise infrastructures.

Each compute environment must be pre-configured to enable Tower to submit tasks. You can read more on how to set up each environment using the links below.


The following pages describe how to set up a compute environment for each of the available platforms.

Select a default compute environment#

If you have more than one compute environment, you can select which one will be used by default when launching a pipeline.

  1. In a workspace, select Compute Environments.

  2. Select Make primary for a particular compute environment to make it your default.


You are now ready to launch pipelines with your primary compute environment.
