Getting started workflow (restricted mode)

Contributors netapp-bcammett

Get started with BlueXP in restricted mode by preparing your environment, deploying the Connector, and subscribing to BlueXP.

Restricted mode is typically used by state and local governments and regulated companies, including deployments in AWS GovCloud and Azure Government regions. Before you get started, you should have an understanding of BlueXP accounts, Connectors, and deployment modes.

  1. Prepare a dedicated Linux host that meets requirements for CPU, RAM, disk space, container orchestration tool, and more.

  2. Set up networking that provides access to the target networks, outbound internet access for manual installations, and outbound internet for day-to-day access.

  3. Set up permissions in your cloud provider so that you can associate those permissions with the Connector instance after you deploy it.

  1. Install the Connector from your cloud provider's marketplace or by manually installing the software on your own Linux host.

  2. Set up BlueXP by opening a web browser and entering the Linux host's IP address.

  3. Provide BlueXP with the permissions that you previously set up.

Subscribe to BlueXP from your cloud provider's marketplace to pay for BlueXP services at an hourly rate (PAYGO) or through an annual contract.
