In a production environment, you must deploy vRealize Code Stream on a dedicated appliance.

When you deploy vRealize Code Stream for production, you can configure up to 1000 pipeline models and execute up to 50 concurrent pipelines.

Note:

You must host vRealize Automation Services on a different appliance. For more information on deployment of vRealize Automation, see Reference Architecture for vRealize Automation 7.0 guide.

Deploying vRealize Code Stream for production

Requirements

The components configured on the same appliance are:

  • vRealize Automation Appliance

    The vRealize Automation deployment can be a single appliance or a load balanced cluster.

    For more information on deployment topologies, see the Reference Architecture for vRealize Automation guide.

  • vRealize Code Stream Appliance

    A standalone appliance dedicated for vRealize Code Stream services. vRealize Code Stream and vRealize Automation are packaged together, and vRealize Code Stream is deployed using the same vRealize Automation. However, this appliance is dedicated for vRealize Code Stream Services only and you must apply the license only to the vRealize Code Stream Appliance.

Although both vRealize Automation and vRealize Code Stream are deployed on the same appliance, vRealize Automation is considered as an external system. The plug-ins connect to vRealize Automation instance using an endpoint configuration. For more information on how to define an endpoint for vRealize Automation plug-ins, see the Configuring vRealize Automation guide.

Hardware Specification

The deployment must be configured with the minimal and required hardware specification. For more information on editing OVF settings for a virtual machine, see the vSphere Virtual Machine Administration guide.
