Remote deployment option overview¶
The "Remote deployment option" is an on-premis deployment solution for IFS Cloud.
To setup a Remote environment VMware is a requirement. A VMware ova file will be available in the LE portal that has a k8s instance installed on it. This VM together with a Windows server from the costomers own ova template will make up the middle tier of IFS Cloud. The DB server can be a physical server outside the VMware cluster.
The management server is the server from where installation and configuration is made to the middle tier and the DB. It will cater a folder structure with some utility scripts and a folder with all required configuration. In this folder structure the build_home and successiv deliveries resides. This machine is probably a VM in a VMware cluster, but can be a standalone physical machine.
Middler tier server¶
The middle tier server is a virtual appliance delivered from IFS as a "black box". There should never be a need to logon to this machine. All neccessary configuration of it is done by utility scripts from the management server. This virtual appliance can only reside in a VMware cluster.
This server will have the database instance installed on it. It is probably a physical machine, but can be virtualised as well.
