HCL Digital Experience 9.5 Roadmap: Container deployment

This roadmap outlines the HCL Digital Experience deployment on Docker, Red Hat OpenShift platforms, and on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).

Who should use this roadmap

HCL Digital Experience can be deployed to run on the Docker container platform or as a fully functioning deployment on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and, as of 9.5 CF_171, on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Users with existing OpenShift or Amazon EKS deployments can deploy HCL Digital Experience in their existing environments and have a minimally-deployed environment running in minutes.

Use this roadmap if you are an organization with the following requirements:
  • An organization that needs to deploy on Docker
  • An organization that needs to deploy on OpenShift
  • An organization that needs to deploy on Amazon EKS (9.5 CF_171)
  • An organization that needs to make fault-tolerant systems
  • An organization that needs to use clustering, scheduling, and orchestration to scale applications
