The topics in this section are intended to guide you through the basic process of setting up and configuring your AccelOps deployment. This includes downloading and installing the AccelOps OVA image, using your hypervisor virtual machine manager to configure the hardware settings for your AccelOps node, setting up basic configurations on your Supervisor node, and registering your Supervisor and other nodes. Setting up IT infrastructure monitoring, including device discovery, monitoring configuration, setting up business services, is covered in under the section Confi guring Your AccelOps Platform.

What You Need to Know before You Begin Installation
What Kind of Deployment Will You Set Up?
Before beginning installation you should have determined the exact deployment configuration you will follow, as described in the topics under Dep loyment Options. Note that many deployment options have particular hardware requirements. For example, if you intend to use an NFS server for a cluster deployment, or if want to use Visual Analytics, you will need to make sure that you have the necessary hardware and network components in place. We strongly recommend that you read through all the installation topics for your deployment configuration before you begin.
Who Will Install and Configure AccelOps?
These topics assume that you have the basic system administration skills required to install AccelOps, and that you are already familiar with the use of hypervisors such as VMware ESX or, if you are setting up a Cloud deployment, that you are already familiar with Cloud environments such as Amazon Web Services.
What Information Do You Need to Get Started?
You will need to have administrator-level permissions on the host where you will download and install AccelOps, and you will also need to have username and password associated with your AccelOps license. If you intend to use NFS storage for event data, you will also need to have set up an NFS server prior to installation.
The Basic Installation Process
The installation process for any AccelOps deployment consists of a few steps:
Import the AccelOps virtual appliance into a hypervisor or Amazon Web Services environment
Edit the virtual appliance hardware settings
Start and configure the virtual appliance from the hypervisor console
Register the virtual appliance
Topics in this section will take you through the specific installation and configuration instructions for the most popular hypervisors and deployment configurations.
