Deployment on Docker

What is Docker?

Docker is an open-source lightweight containerization technology. It allows you to automate the deployment of applications in lightweight and portable containers and ship it all out as one package. It also allows you to run multiple Operating systems on the same host.

Deployment on Kubernetes

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open-source container management software developed in the Google platform. It is a highly flexible container tool to deliver even complex applications. It helps you to manage a containerized application in various types of physical, virtual, and cloud environments. It also allows you to manage your containerized application more efficiently.

How many servers do I need to deploy Sametime 11.5 meetings?

Sametime Meetings should be on a separate server that is Linux and not on the same box with Community or the other Sametime servers.

Note: Docker / Kubernetes make some specialized changes to the OS for networks and control points that could interfere with Domino and/or Sametime Proxy.
  1. A server for Mongo, Domino (64 bit), Sametime Community, and Sametime Proxy - running on either Windows or Linux.
  2. Separate server for Sametime Meetings running in Linux within either Docker or Kubernetes.
