Topology and Pre-requisites
In no particular order:
- Creating and managing virtual nodes
- Familiarity with command line interface commands
- Basic understanding of how JSON files are structured and how to edit them
- Operating systems
- Mac (at least Yosemite 10.10+)
- Windows 7 and/or 10
- Linux Ubuntu (14.0.4+)
- VMware or Docker depending which version you are installing (Docker knowledge applies to both OVA and regular installation)
- Database software (e.g. MongoDB, etc.)
Three node setup
Eight node setup
Note: you will need to provide a valid SMPT server with authentication enabled.
API Runtime Services can be deployed to a minimum three (3) host clusters. However, to achieve high availability, a minimum of eight (8) hosts are recommended.
Minimal hardware requirements for on-premise installation
||Physical nodes (Non Production topology)
|Mongodb primary / secondary / arbiter
- 10 GB root disk
- /data 50G data disk
(Only primary and secondary nodes need separate volume raid10 for production usage)
||1 / 1 / 1
||1 / 0 / 0
(Separate Volume raid10 recommended for production usage)
||0 (can be combined with mongoDB node)
Operating System on target hosts
Required client machine software that performs installation
You need to run the deploy command from a Linux or Mac machine running Docker 1.13.0 or above.
Software requirement for target hosts
When install any additional software for pre-installation (nfsutils, docker, etc.), one should flag it as always being required.
RHEL 7/CENTOS 7:
The client machine can run Linux, Mac or Windows 10 with docker 1.13.0 or greater.
With the installation of Redhat 7 or Centos 7, you can provide your own username and password as long as all the VMs in the cluster use the same username and password.
All binaries, capacity planning and installation guides, Docker images, and other installation files can found here on Axway Support. Note: Once you have signed into the support login page, you'll need to select Downloads, Appcelerator Private, and your desired software version from the Quick Access. Once the selected page has loaded, select the version you are working with to see a list of the files you can download. From there, you can download the files as necessary to get your installation up and running.
The following internal and external ports should be open on the target hosts.
|"5000", "7000", "30000 ~ 32767", "2376", "2377", "7946", "4789", "8082", "8300", "8301", "8500", "60001", "60002", "60003", "8032","8033", "2049", "8001", "8002", "9009"
