Installation options

You can create an on-premise deployment of Resource Manager by following one of two mutually-exclusive installation paths:
  • Install Resource Manager virtual appliances as guest systems on a VMWare vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor. The guest systems include Control Center and require relatively little configuration. This is the recommended deployment option.
  • Install Control Center on Red Hat Linux or CentOS hosts and add Resource Manager. This the most flexible installation path and it includes support for high-availability configurations.

For more information about additional installation options, please contact your Zenoss representative.

The remainder of this guide describes the resource requirements of the preceding installation paths.
