Quickstart Installation helps you jump start with the DIGIT basic installation steps with limited functionalities
DIGIT Quickstart setup give you the ability to try setting up DIGIT Infra on a local machine/VM quickly. These are not meant for production use as is. However this quickstart flow can make you familiar with most of the production grade setup.
Quickstart is recommended for a basic infra types like local machine, setting up on a single VM, etc. Here we would create a Lightweight Kubernetes (k3d ) cluster which does not really need full fledged cloud setup or multiple VMs. See the open source project k3d to understand more. You can install k3d on a local or on a VM when you have all the below pre-requisites and hardware requirement met.
To install k3d, make sure your instance meets the following h/w requirements that has sufficient CPU and Memory for both your default systems and for the DIGIT Setup requirement
Apart from the regular system usage, DIGIT should have a dedicated CPU/Memory requirement as below.
You must have a admin/sudoer access before you proceed.
OS: Ubuntu 18.04 or Debian 10 or Windows 10 or Mac OSX
Local machine or VM or bare metal
8 vCPUs (recommend 8+)
16 GiB of RAM (recommend 20+)
30 GiB of HDD (recommend 40+)
NAT or Bridged networking with access to the internet
Before proceeding with DIGIT quickstart. Check the machine's remaining CPU/Memory capacity, To check the same you can use the following commands to determine, the commands vary from an OS to OS, so do choose your OS specific Instructions.
Windows - On Command Prompt
Linux - On Terminal
Mac - On terminal
Note: The above commands output will provide you with the total memory/cpu and unused/free/available memory/cpu details. Make sure your unused/free/availablememory should meet the following
Let's start Quickstart Setup
When the above prerequisites are met, please proceed with the following steps
