Plan your Deployment Strategy for Aternity on-premise 11.0.3

To plan your Aternity on-premise deployment, you must choose the size, shape and contingencies to put into place for your deployment.

Plan your deployment of Aternity on-premise

Procedure

  1. Step 1 Size your deployment to determine the number of servers and their hardware requirements.

    Some Aternity components can share the same computer, depending on the size of your deployment.

    Size of deployment Description

    Trial deployment (up to 1000 devices)

    Trial POC deployment for Aternity on-premise

    In the trial deployment, the Aternity Management Server hosts Oracle Database Server, Data Warehouse Server, and Aggregation Server.

    For details about the hardware specifications, learn more.

    Small deployment (up to 30,000 devices)

    Learn more

    Small Aternity deployment

    In the small deployment, the Aternity Management Server hosts Data Warehouse Server.

    For details about the hardware specifications, learn more.

    Medium deployments (up to 60,000 devices)

    Learn more

    Medium sized Aternity deployment

    Aternity requires one Aggregation Server per 40,000 monitored devices and one Vertica Database Server node per 25,000 monitored devices. So, calculate the number of servers you need following the amount of monitored devices in your organization.

    Data Warehouse Server should be deployed on a dedicated machine separately from other Aternity servers in deployments with more than 40,000 monitored devices.

    For details about the hardware specifications, learn more.

    Large deployments (up to 110,000 devices

    Learn more

    Large Aternity deployment

    Aternity requires one Aggregation Server per 40,000 monitored devices and one Vertica Database Server node per 25,000 monitored devices. So, calculate the number of servers you need following the amount of monitored devices in your organization.

    Data Warehouse Server should be deployed on a dedicated machine separately from other Aternity servers in deployments with more than 40,000 monitored devices.

    X-large deployments (up to 160,000 devices)

    Learn more

    X-large Aternity deployment

    Aternity requires one Aggregation Server per 40,000 monitored devices and one Vertica Database Server node per 25,000 monitored devices. So, calculate the number of servers you need following the amount of monitored devices in your organization.

    Data Warehouse Server should be deployed on a dedicated machine separately from other Aternity servers in deployments with more than 40,000 monitored devices.

    XX-large deployments (up to 220,000 devices)

    Learn more

    XX-large Aternity deployment

    Aternity requires one Aggregation Server per 40,000 monitored devices and one Vertica Database Server node per 25,000 monitored devices. So, calculate the number of servers you need following the amount of monitored devices in your organization.

    Data Warehouse Server should be deployed on a dedicated machine separately from other Aternity servers in deployments with more than 40,000 monitored devices.

  2. Step 2 Secure your deployment to determine whether to implement secure HTTPS for external access to Aternity.
    Secure your connections to monitored devices and to users of the system
  3. Step 3 Choose the network topology of your deployment, which determines the placement of firewalls and any ports to open between them.
    Centralized deployment of Aternity on-premise
  4. Step 4 Choose a policy of backups for your deployment.
    Implement redundancy via failover in Aternity
  5. Step 5 Prepare the operating systems and other software requirements for each server.
    Important

    Synchronize all Aternity components to have the same date, time AND time zone.

  6. Step 6 Perform your setup or upgrade of Aternity on-premise on the computers you prepared.
  7. Step 7 Plan and deploy Agent for End User Devices on devices, so they report their performance to Aternity
    Important

    Aternity on-premise 11.x requires that devices ONLY run Agent for End User Devices 9.0, 9.1.7, 9.2.x, or Agent 11.0.

    Product Supported Agent for End User Devices
    Aternity 11.x

    Agent 9.0, 9.1.7, 9.2.x, or Agent 11.0

    Aternity 10.x

    Agent 9.0.x, 9.1.7 or 9.2.5 ONLY.

    Aternity 9.x

    Agent 9.0.x ONLY.
