How to install Landscape Server with Juju
With Juju you can deploy Landscape in a scalable way, and still have all services on a single machine if you want to.
- Install Juju
- Deploy self-hosted Landscape Server
- Access self-hosted Landscape
Install Juju as a snap with this command:
sudo snap install juju --classic
To learn more about Juju and to bootstrap a Juju controller, check out their getting started page.
When deploying with Juju, you will use a Juju bundle. A bundle is an encapsulation of all of the parts needed to deploy the required services as well as associated relations and configurations that the deployment requires. When deploying Landscape Server using Juju, there are three different methods you can use. Select the one that meets the needs for your environment.
If you have a MAAS server, you can take advantage of containers and use the
juju deploy landscape-dense-maas
This will deploy Landscape on just one node using LXD containers for all services.
landscape-scalable each service gets its own machine. Currently that means you will need 4 machines for Landscape, and one for the controller node:
juju deploy landscape-scalable
landscape-dense is quite similar to the
landscape-dense-maas deployment, but it installs the
haproxy service directly on the machine without a container. All the other services use a container:
juju deploy landscape-dense
This is useful for the cases where the LXD containers don’t get externally routable IP addresses.
Once the deployment has finished, grab the address of the first
haproxy unit and access it with your browser:
juju status haproxy
