Kx Platform deployment
Kx Platform is delivered as a tarball bundle (Linux) or a zip file (Windows) which contains installation scripts and component packages.
The Kx Platform is deployed using a proprietary installation script on Linux. In interactive mode, the script prompts the user for information about the deployment architecture before unpacking the relevant packages and installing them into a chosen location on the host machine.
On Windows the Kx Platform is delivered as a pre-deployed bundle which can be unpacked and configured in place on the deployment host.
The Kx Platform deployment process includes well-known upgrade and rollback paths which are detailed in this guide.
