Installing the server in a Kubernetes/OpenShift cluster

The IBM™ UrbanCode™ Deploy server can be installed in a cloud-based environment, as a containerized server cluster, managed by Kubernetes. IBM UrbanCode Deploy works with Kubernetes to simplify application deployment and manage versions in the containers.

The core installation of IBM UrbanCode Deploy includes a server, database, and agents. In a typical containerized topology, the IBM UrbanCode Deploy server is installed as a single server in a container or can be scaled to a server cluster managed by Kubernetes. The database is installed in a container or an on-premises location. Agents can be installed on cloud environments, virtual machines (VMs), containers, or physical systems.

The server cluster is configured in IBM® Cloud™ Kubernetes® Service (IKS) cloud-based environment and it's compatible versions.
  • IBM® Cloud™ Kubernetes® Service (IKS)

    IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service provides dedicated core and memory allocations, as well as features like image templates. In this environment, you perform configuration and management tasks using both the IBM Cloud infrastructure customer portal and the API. Virtual servers are deployed to the same VLANs as physical servers, allowing you to spread workloads across IBM UrbanCode Deploy servers, while maintaining interoperability. IBM UrbanCode Deploy server scalability in IKS is supported by a Kubernetes orchestrator.
