The following video (4:07) provides a summary of deploying BMC Helix Innovation Suite and Service Management applications by using containers:
Benefits of container deployment
container deployment provides the following advantages:
- Simplified on-premises deployment process with reduced deployment cost.
- Automated, faster, and less error prone deployment as compared to the server-based installation.
- Less resource consumption offering better resource scalability.
- Ability to consume cloud-based services such as, BMC Helix Multi-Cloud Broker.
- Ensures application security by isolating applications from the host and other applications.
Product roles and permissions
BMC Helix Innovation Suite deployment process aims at simplifying the on-premises deployment process performed by the roles described in the following image:
Deploying containers simplifies the installation of BMC Helix Innovation Suite. This automated process reduces the complexity of deployment as compared to the deployment by using installers.
The following diagram provides an overview of a container deployment:
Before you start the deployment, make sure that your system meets the hardware and software requirements.
Product key solutions
Container deployment of BMC Helix Innovation Suite includes the following key tasks:
Perform a fresh installation of BMC Helix Innovation Suite
The BMC Helix Innovation Suite container installs BMC Helix Innovation Suite and Service Management applications in your on-premises environment by using the Jenkins pipeline. Deploy applications as per your business requirement and license entitlement.
Make sure to check the hardware and software requirements before starting the deployment.
See the following process flow to understand the high-level overview of deploying BMC Helix Innovation Suiteas container:
For more information, see Installation process overview.
Perform data migration
BMC Helix Data Manager fully supports your data migration needs. You can migrate your data to a new system in a matter of hours.
The tool automatically discovers the structure of the applications so that you can migrate data quickly, easily, and intuitively. BMC Helix Data Manager includes preconfigured migration packs for the major BMC Helix ITSM releases. You can modify these packs to meet the needs of your application, project, and business. Helpful data mapping tools (which include built-in transformations and conditional logic) are also available.
Recommended skill set and trainings
