Containerization | HCL Digital Experience

Learn more about the containerization architecture, including the supported container platforms in deploying HCL Portal images for your environment.

Overview

HCL introduced full support for containerization in Digital Experience (DX) 9.5. HCL Digital Experience users can deploy HCL Portal images in Docker, Red Hat OpenShift 4.1 and higher, and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) for test, development, staging, and production environments. See the HCL Digital Experience 9.5 Roadmap: Container deployment topic for the latest information on supported platforms and container packages.

Whether developing, testing, or running a full production environment, containers are preferred for the ease of deploying applications, including the latest version of HCL Digital Experience. Deploy in a fraction of the time it takes compared to traditional deployment models.
