Quick Deployer 2.0 is available and now supports deployment to Windows

After several months of development, we’re very pleased to announce that IBM Quick Deployer version 2.0 is now available, free to download and use from Jazz.net under a “Non-warranted Program” license.

IBM Quick Deployer is installation and deployment automation for IBM’s Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) and IoT Continuous Engineering (CE) Solutions 6.0.4, 6.0.3, 6.0.2, 6.0.1 and CLM 6.0 using UrbanCode Deploy (UCD). It can be used to deploy CE/CLM onto user-supplied VMs, either locally or in the cloud, including the installation and configuration of the supporting middleware (Websphere Application Server and DB2 or Oracle).

With version 2.0, we’ve refactored the installation scripts to support deployment to both Linux (Red Hat Linux 6.6.+) and, for the first time, Windows (Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard) platforms. We’ve also added some improvements to the automated installer for Quick Deployer into the UrbanCode Deploy server. The installer now uses properties files where you specify the details, such as user credentials and database parameters, of your installation, making setting up Quick Deployer a snap!

Quick Deployer supports the Jazz Standard Deployment Topologies. However, since it uses a UCD-provided tagging mechanism, users can easily distribute their applications across their servers so many different topologies are possible. Currently, only one instance of each Jazz application is supported per topology.

We hope you like it and we’d love to hear your feedback!
