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

It supports launching of 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.

Setup guides#

The following sections describe how to set up each of the available compute environments.

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. Navigate to your compute environments.

2. Choose your default environment by selecting the Make primary button.


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