Detailed information on the Aerospike state store component

Setup Aerospike

You can run Aerospike locally using Docker:

docker run -d --name aerospike -p 3000:3000 -p 3001:3001 -p 3002:3002 -p 3003:3003 aerospike

You can then interact with the server using localhost:3000.

The easiest way to install Aerospike on Kubernetes is by using the Helm chart:

helm repo add incubator
helm install --name my-aerospike --namespace aerospike stable/aerospike

This will install Aerospike into the aerospike namespace. To interact with Aerospike, find the service with: kubectl get svc aerospike -n aerospike.

For example, if installing using the example above, the Aerospike host address would be:


Create a Dapr component

The next step is to create a Dapr component for Aerospike.

Create the following YAML file named aerospike.yaml:

kind: Component
  name: <NAME>
  namespace: <NAMESPACE>
  type: state.Aerospike
  - name: hosts
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-HOSTS> # Required. A comma delimited string of hosts. Example: "aerospike:3000,aerospike2:3000"
  - name: namespace
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-NAMESPACE> # Required. The aerospike namespace.
  - name: set
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-SET> # Optional.

Apply the configuration

In Kubernetes

To apply the Aerospike state store to Kubernetes, use the kubectl CLI:

kubectl apply -f aerospike.yaml

Running locally

To run locally, create a components dir containing the YAML file and provide the path to the dapr run command with the flag --components-path.
