Orchestrator in IaaS - Deploy

If you are installing Orchestrator in IaaS, follow the steps in this topic.

You can deploy Orchestrator as a Virtual Machine (VM) in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, or Google Cloud. It is available on the AWS Marketplace, Azure Marketplace, and Google Cloud Marketplace as a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) VM instance. This topic illustrates how to deploy an Orchestrator instance from a cloud service.


Prior to deployment, you must have the following:

  • An existing account for the cloud service.

  • Permission to deploy a VM from the cloud service into a VPC (for Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud) or VNET (for Azure).

NOTE: If you have an existing VPC, be sure that it can accommodate the Orchestrator deployment. Firewall rules applied to the VPC must allow inbound and outbound HTTPS traffic to and from the internet. If firewall rules are not created to allow inbound and outbound HTTPS traffic, you can create a firewall rule specifically for the Orchestrator VM while deploying it from AWS or the Google Cloud Compute Engine.

Deployment Overview

Deploying Orchestrator in the cloud is a two-step process.

Step 1: Deploy Orchestrator in the cloud service. See the appropriate section below:

Step 2: Log in and upgrade Orchestrator.

Deploy Orchestrator in Amazon Web Services

To deploy Orchestrator in Amazon Web Services:

  1. To locate the Orchestrator AMI on the AWS Marketplace, log into your AWS account, click Services, and select EC2 under Compute.

    The EC2 Dashboard appears.

  2. Click Launch Instance.

  3. Click the AWS Marketplace link, and type silver peak

    The Silver Peak product listings appear.

  4. Select Silver Peak Unity Orchestrator for AWS.

    The Choose an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) page opens.

  5. Click Continue.

    The Choose an Instance Type page opens.

    Refer to the Orchestrator Host System Requirements to find the recommended CPU, RAM, and storage requirements for Orchestrator based on the number of EdgeConnect devices that you are planning to manage from Orchestrator.

  6. After selecting the instance type, click Next: Configure Instance Details.

    The Configure Instance Details page opens.

  7. Refer to the table below to enter settings for each configuration option.

    VPC Configuration Settings
    Number of instances 1
    Purchasing option Keep the default setting.
    Network Select the VPC into which you want to deploy the Orchestrator.
    Subnet Select a subnet.
    Auto-assign Public IP If you are deploying Orchestrator for a short period of time, for instance, for a Proof of Concept, you can select Enable, which assigns a dynamic public IP to the Orchestrator. If you plan to use Orchestrator in a production environment, it is recommended to assign an Elastic (static) IP address to Orchestrator.
    Placement group Keep the default setting.
    IAM role Select an appropriate IAM role. If no IAM roles are created, select None.
    Shutdown behavior Stop
    Capacity Reservation Optional
    Enable termination protection Optional
    Monitoring Optional
    EBS-optimized instance Launch as EBS-optimized instance.
    Tenancy Shared – Run a shared hardware instance.
    Elastic Inference Keep the default setting.
  8. Click Next: Add Storage.

    The Add Storage page opens. Keep the default settings.

  9. Click Next: Add Tags.

    The Add Tag page opens. Optionally, you may assign a tag to the Orchestrator.

  10. Click Next: Configure Security Group.

    The Configure Security Group page opens.

  11. Create a new Security Group or assign an existing Security Group. You should enable inbound TCP port 22 and TCP port 443 from your network to access the Orchestrator. Similarly, allow all outbound traffic.

  12. Click Review and Launch.

    The Review Instance Launch page opens

  13. Click Launch.

    The Select an existing keypair or create a new keypair window opens. As the name suggests, you may select an existing keypair or create a new one.

  14. Select Assign a keypair.

  15. Click Launch instance.

  16. On the Launch Status page, click the instance (AMI) ID.

    The EC2 page opens.

  17. If you assigned a dynamic public IP address while deploying Orchestrator, you will see it on the Description tab of the VM. If you did not assign a public IP address while deploying Orchestrator, click the Elastic IPs page, allocate a new static IP address, and assign it to Orchestrator.

You have now deployed your Orchestrator.
