Deployment tools

You might benefit from automating all or part of the StorageGRID Webscale installation.

Automating the deployment might be useful in any of the following cases:

The StorageGRID Webscale host service is installed by a package and driven by configuration files that can be created interactively during a manual installation, or prepared ahead of time (or programmatically) to enable automated installation using standard orchestration frameworks. StorageGRID Webscale provides optional Python scripts for automating the configuration of StorageGRID Webscale Appliances, and the whole StorageGRID Webscale system (the “grid”). You can use these scripts directly, or you can inspect them to learn how to use the StorageGRID Webscale Installation REST API in grid deployment and configuration tools you develop yourself.

If you are interested in automating all or part of your StorageGRID Webscale deployment, review “Automating the installation” before beginning the installation process.
