A.0 Creating an All-in-One Deployment

To create an all-in-one deployment, you install one TeamWorks appliance. By default TeamWorks also includes the PostgreSQL database and Search functions.

Ensuring All-in-One Suitability

With few exceptions, small deployments are only suitable for proof-of-concept deployments, which, by definition, do not require extensive planning. There is, however, a planning worksheet for all-in-one deployments. See Worksheet 10-a - All-in-One Appliance.

For a production deployment, you should use the TeamWorks 18.2.1 Planning Your TeamWorks Deployment—Best Practices guide and associated planning worksheets to gauge whether a small deployment could meet your organization’s production needs.

All-in-One System Requirements

Most of the requirements in Section 3.0, System Requirements apply to small deployments.

However, 80% of the RAM should be dedicated to the Java heap.

For information about adjusting the Java heap settings, see Changing the Memory Configuration Settings in the TeamWorks 18.2.1: Administrative UI Reference.
