New installation (v5.0)
This section explains the pre-requisites and installation steps to deploy Quobis communication platform v5.0 from scratch. The Quobis wac is software-only product, so there are not physical items to ship, everything can be downloaded from our servers.
The Quobis Communication Platform is a cloud native, containerized application that can be deployed on on-premises (bare metal or virtualized infrastructure), Private and Public Cloud environments. It is deployed on top of Kubernetes , also known as K8s, an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery.
The actual installation and deployment is doing by leveraging Ansible , an open source IT automation engine that automates provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, orchestration, and many other IT processes. Ansible works by connecting to the destination machines nodes and pushing out small programs, called modules, to them.
The following chapters explain all the required steps to set up the platform.
