Because Mendix for Private Cloud is running on your own Kubernetes-based private cloud, you need to set up resources in this cloud to support your app.
Mendix provides you with the following:
- Mendix for Private Cloud setup
- The Mendix Operator to control how your app uses the services in the cluster
And, in addition, for connected mode:
- Online platform services in the Developer Portal
- The Mendix Gateway Agent, to connect the Mendix Operator to the Developer Portal
Support for setting up your resources is not included in your Mendix license, but Mendix can help you on a consultancy basis.
A Kuberbetes-based Cluster
Kubernetes is the environment in which the apps need to run.
You need to provide a database server and file storage where your Mendix app will store its persistent data.
Since Mendix apps are web-based you need to configure the network to allow access to the application. Mendix for Private Cloud will leverage the existing network configuration.
Monitoring and Logging
You can connect your own monitoring and logging solution to Mendix for Private Cloud.
Kubernetes is a container-based runtime platform so you need to provide an image-storage registry to store application images which will be deployed to the Kubernetes-based environments by the Mendix Operator.
