LDS (Landscape Dedicated Server)

LDS is the standalone version of Landscape that you can install on your own network. Here is how you can get started:

  • Quickstart, for when you don't have Juju but quickly want to check out LDS:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:landscape/15.01
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install landscape-server-quickstart
  • Juju deployed for a truly scalable deployment. Using bundles, for example:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:juju/stable
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install juju-core juju-deployer juju-quickstart
  • Now select your bundle (note: you need juju-quickstart 2.0 or higher to use these):

    landscape-dense-maas: if you have the MAAS provider, you can deploy all services on the bootstrap node using containers:

    juju-quickstart u/landscape/landscape-dense-maas
  • landscape-scalable: each service gets its own machine. Currently that means you will need 6 machines for LDS, and one for the bootstrap node:

    juju-quickstart u/landscape/landscape-scalable
  • Once the deployment has finished, grab the address of the apache2/0 unit and access it with your browser:

    juju status apache2/0
  • Manual installation: for when you don't have a suitable Juju environment but need a scalable deployment.
