IBM Quick Deployer updated.png

Authors: ThomasPiccoli, KennethThomson, JenniferLiu, KenTessier, ClareCarty
Build basis: CLM 6.0, CLM 6.0.x, CE 6.0.x

IBM Quick Deployer automates installing and deploying IBM Jazz solutions: Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) and IoT Continuous Engineering (CE) on Red Hat Linux 6.9+ or Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard by using IBM UrbanCode Deploy. Currently the operating system of all VMs in a deployment must be the same. You can use IBM Quick Deployer to deploy CLM 6.0, CLM 6.0.x and CE 6.0.x on user-supplied VMs, either locally or in the cloud. The automation can also install and configure middleware, including IBM WebSphere Application Server, IBM HTTP Server, and IBM DB2 database server or Oracle database server. IBM Quick Deployer supports the standard Jazz deployment topologies; however, because it uses an UrbanCode Deploy tagging mechanism, you can distribute applications across multiple servers and many different topologies are possible. Currently only new installations are supported and only one instance of each Jazz application is supported per topology. Upgrade support is being considered for future releases.

IBM Quick Deployer is developed and used internally by the CLM DevOps pipeline team. IBM Quick Deployer provides a flexible mechanism for building topologies and easily switching between deployment platforms. IBM Quick Deployer is available as an unsupported utility that can be downloaded from Jazz.net, so you can now use the same automation to deploy and configure new installations in your own environment. IBM Quick Deployer removes the need to understand all the middleware and application configuration details, eliminates human error, conforms to recommended topologies, and provides a repeatable process.

IBM Quick Deployer overview

  • IBM UrbanCode Deploy-based new installation and configuration package for CLM and CE (no upgrade support)
  • Support for installing iFix releases for CLM, Design Management and IBM Rhapsody Design Management applications
  • Used internally as part of the CLM continuous test pipeline
  • UrbanCode Deploy-type tagging allows you to control which applications are deployed and where
  • Eliminates dependence on preinstalled middleware images
  • Installs WebSphere Application Server
  • Installs IBM HTTP Server (reverse proxy)
  • Installs a DB2 or Oracle database server or connects to an existing DB2 or Oracle database server
  • Connects to a provided LDAP server
  • Delivered as an unsupported Jazz.net download

New in QD v2.0

  • Support for Windows deployments. You can now use Quick Deployer to deploy CLM or CE applications and supporting middleware, on Linux (Red Hat Linux 6.9+) or Windows (Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard) platforms. Note: the operating system of all VMs in a deployment must be the same.
  • An installer that automates many of the setup tasks that had to be completed manually in previous releases. The installer uses several properties files where you specify the details, such as user credentials and database parameters, of your installation.
