Introduction

This is the baseline deployment recommendation we have for the LDS product using the Debian packages delivery mechanism. At a minimum, we have two machines:

  • a database server, running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS ("lucid"), with Postgresql 8.4
  • an application server, also running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS ("lucid"), hosting the Landscape services

Below is a diagram showing a reasonable default network layout:

(XXX - missing diagram)

Important points:

  • the APP server needs http access to people.canonical.com in order to download the USN database and detect security updates

  • the APP server also needs http access to the public Ubuntu archives, in order to update the hash-id-database files and detect new distribution releases
