Kubernetes namespaces

Cluster resources created using the Azure Marketplace are pre-configured 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.

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

    Availability zones and Reliable Transport

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

  • 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.
