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.
