We’ve been proud to offer our Command Center solution for several years now- allowing customers a way to easily monitor and manage their entire fleet of recorders. We’re always looking for new ways to improve the experience for our customers, and today we’re happy to announce that we’ve recently expanded the platforms that we support for installation of Command Center.
Since the beginning, we’ve supported installation of the Command Center on Debian-based VMs. We ourselves use the latest LTS version of Ubuntu not only for Command Center, but also for our recorders. However, it is often the case that there is a single mandated version or type of linux across campus that may not be Debian based – and we’re happy to announce there are new options for those customers.
First, we’re expanding our VM and dedicated server support to include deployments using Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the base operating system. Red Hat is an extremely popular linux distribution in a large variety of enterprise and educational environments due to its heavy focus on security – and we’re happy to be able to support running Command Center on it going into the future.
We’re also releasing a containerized version of the Command Center that can run in either a standalone Docker instance, or within a Kubernetes cluster. This allows our customers to run Command Center within any Linux environment, or to run it in a large cluster that already runs a large number of other containerized applications.
With these two major additions, we hope to cover even more use cases for Command Center – which will continue to be a premiere on-premise solution where the end users are in full control over how they deploy and use it in their day-to-day management and monitoring workflows.
