iFIX Service Installation
Infrastructure Setup

Introduction

iFix/mGramSeva is a microservices-based distributed cloud-native application. The microservices streamline processes to meet outcomes at scale and speed. Each of the microservices is dockerized and deployed on Kubernetes infrastructure.

Pre-reads

It is essential to understand some of the key concepts, benefits and best practices of Kubernetes platform before we understand the deployment of the iFix/mGramSeva.

1. Choose Installation Type

Choose the target infra type and follow the instructions to set up a Kubernetes cluster before moving on to the deployment.

2. Deployment

Before we begin the deployment, it is important to understand the deployment architecture that starts from the source code to the production-ready stage. Deploying and managing Kubernetes have emerged as a streamlined way to deploy containers in the cloud infrastructure. When running Kubernetes at scale, managing, operating, and scaling its infrastructure to maximize cluster utilization can be challenging. There are too many parameters the development team needs to manage and configure. This includes selecting the best instance type and size, determining when to scale up or down, and making sure all of the containers are scheduled and running on the best instances — and that is even before starting to think about cost resource optimization.
The simplest way to get started with the deployment process is to manage deployment configuration as code. Each service deployment configuration is defined as Helm charts and deployed into the Kubernetes cluster. We can collocate the deployment-as-code as source code, leveraging all the benefits of source control including change tracking and branching, and then package it. So below is the source code repo that contains all the deployment-as-code for iFIX.

1. mGramSeva Installation

2. iFIX-adapter Installation

3. iFIX Ref Dashboard Installation

3. Destroy the Setup

Clean up the cluster Setup using the command below, if required. This deletes the entire cluster and other cloud resources that were provisioned for the mGramSeva Infra Setup.

Conclusion

All done, the infra on Local, Cloud, and deployment of iFIX into the Kubernetes cluster is completed successfully.
