Docker is an open source platform that provides an isolated environment called containers to run the applications. Docker allows independent containers to run within a single Linux instance. A Docker image is an executable package that can run an application, a code, run-time files, environment variables, or configuration files. A container is a run-time instance of an image.
You can configure
on Kubernetes to optimize resource management and enable load balancing for the Informatica domain within the containerized environment. You can also provide horizontal scaling of pods based on the load provided on the domain.
Informatica Deployment Manager supports only Azure Kubernetes Service as the Kubernetes platform.
You can use Informatica Deployment Manager to build the Docker image. You can build the Docker image with the default base or custom operating system and Informatica product binaries. With Informatica Deployment Manager, you can create containers using this Docker image to configure the Informatica domain.
When you run the Docker image, you can install Informatica products and you can create a domain.
With Informatica Deployment Manager, you can build the Docker image with the silent installer. If you want to run the silent installer, you can choose to generate the silent input properties when you go through the wizard steps, and then copy the properties directly to the silent install properties file. You can create the application services when you run the Docker image.
