Cloud-native is the biggest enabler of the generation and helps you to deliver business value by providing you the flexibility to quickly incorporate user feedback for continuous improvement. With the latest feature release, Unica Discover has become cloud-native.
Why go Cloud-Native?
Cloud-Native applications have several advantages over typical on-premises deployments. Unlike traditional applications, Cloud-Native application resources are automatically provisioned and released with an on-demand allocation of infrastructure. With auto-scaling, complex up-down process needs are addressed, and resources are paid for on a need-only basis. Container-based platforms decrease the time taken to deliver new products and services to market.
HCL understands the customer’s needs to have a stable infrastructure that is also primed to scale up or down based on the times of the year. Reduced cost through containerization and the ease of managing the infrastructure will translate to a better customer experience.
Unica Discover Is Dockerized!
Along with the traditional on-premises solution, Unica Discover is now cloud-ready for any infrastructure options with Docker containerization. With this, Unica Discover has become more flexible, scalable, and manageable, leveraging the Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery (CICD) model. Dockerized CICD upgrades will allow upgrades, features, enhancements, and fixes to be delivered to customers more frequently and reduced time for testing and deployment!
A traditional Unica Discover deployment has Linux components (DNCA and Packet Forwarder) and Windows components (Routing, Processing server, Reports, Replay server, and DB server). All of the Windows components can be deployed in one server or distributed across servers for larger-scale implementations, and the servers themselves can be physical or virtual. In the cloud-native deployment, we have containerized these components and provided Docker images for each. The ports required for communication within the different components, capturing data from Packet Forwarder to DNCA, and forwarding that data to Routing are all automatically managed within the deployment model, making it easier to deploy and maintain.
Fully automated and configuration-driven Unica Discover installation and deployment is now possible using Helm Charts. To learn more about Unica Discover – both On-Premises and Cloud-Native – have a look at the webinars we have online, and also, you can reach out to us and we would be more than happy to help.
