In a large deployment, the Filr software, the MySQL database, and the search index each runs as a separate appliance. This allows each component to have access to more server memory, disk space, and CPU resources.
For a large deployment, you need to do the following:
Install two search index appliances, as described in Section 5.1, Installing the Search Index Appliance. (Two search index appliances are recommended in order to provide fault tolerance or backup in the event that one index server fails.)
Install either the MySQL database appliance or configure Filr to use your organization’s existing MySQL or Microsoft SQL database server. (Using your organization’s existing MySQL or Microsoft SQL database server is recommended for enterprise installations.)
For information about how to configure Filr to use an existing database, see Section 5.3, Configuring an Existing Database Server.
For information about how to install the MySQL database appliance, see Section 5.2, Installing the MySQL Database Appliance.
Install one or more Filr appliances, as described in Section 5.4, Installing the Filr Appliance.
Configure the large deployment, as described in Section 5.5, Configuring a Large Deployment for the First Time.
NOTE:Before you begin the installation:
Ensure that the server requirements in Section 1.2.1, Filr Server Requirements have been met.
Ensure that you have read and understand Section 1.0, Overview.
