The following diagram shows the infrastructure that KoP installer will create by default:


  • Keep all services in an all-in-one host installation.
  • Decide Under AWS, decide where each service will be installed, one by one (both kiuwan services and infrastructure, as long as you use AWS elasticache as Redis cluster).
  • Externalize one, some or all of the provided non-kiuwan services:
    • Apache load balancer
    • MySQL
    • Redis

All kiuwan instance containers can be scaled up (to a limit) or down to the default configuration. This means that you can start more containers of each kiuwan role depending on your load needs.
