Azure namespaces

Cluster resources created using the Azure Marketplace are preconfigured to use various namespaces. In most cases, when running kubectl commands referenced in the documentation, remember to include the -n insights argument, to make sure all resources under "insights" namespace appear, as well.

Advanced settings

The Azure Marketplace deployment experience is tailored to a DevOps or System Engineer persona. Only use the Advanced Settings section if you understand your system needs. Our Support team are available to assist you if you have any questions.

Before installing kdb Insights Enterprise on Azure, you need the following:

  • Permissions: Please refer to the Permissions Guidelines.

  • Regions: Ensure that you choose an Azure Region with availability zones.

    Availability zones and Reliable Transport

    By default, the kdb Insights Enterprise deployment will run across 3 Availability Zones (AZ) for higher resilience. The Reliable Transport component (RT) will run across 3 different nodes but each node is not set to run in each AZ due to performance considerations. If you want each RT to run in a different AZ to ensure maximum resiliency, you can set the service affinity configuration.

  • IP resources: The pre-requisites depend on your network connectivity choices as described here:

    • Private IP addresses: see the details here on how to allow clients access to the UI and the API endpoints.

    • Public IP address: see details here.

  • Required Resource Providers: the Resource Providers listed below must be registered in the subscription; if you are missing any of them, your deployment can fail.

    To learn how to register resource providers, follow Microsoft Guidance.
