Installation overview

Event Endpoint Management is an operator-based release and uses custom resources to deploy and manage the lifecycle of your Event Endpoint Management installation.

A deployment of Event Endpoint Management consists of a single Event Endpoint Management instance (also referred to as Manager or Event Endpoint Management Manager) that is configured along with one or more instances of an Event Gateway.

  • Event Endpoint Management Manager instances are defined by the EventEndpointManagement custom resource type.
  • Event Gateway instances are defined by the EventGateway custom resource type.

Event Endpoint Management architecture

Installing Event Endpoint Management includes the following high-level steps:

  1. Determine if you will be installing in an:

    Note: Stand-alone Event Gateway instances can only be installed in an online environment.

  2. Install the Event Endpoint Management operator. The operator will then be available to install and manage your Event Endpoint Management Manager instances, and any Event Gateway instances you want to install on the same cluster.
  3. Using the operator, install an instance of the Manager by applying the EventEndpointManagement custom resource type.
  4. Install one or more instances of the Event Gateway on the same cluster, or as a stand-alone deployment on a different host:
    • If you want to install the Event Gateway on the same cluster as the Event Endpoint Management Manager, use the Event Endpoint Management operator to install instances by applying the EventGateway custom resource type. For more information, see installing Event Gateway on the same cluster.
    • If you want to install the Event Gateway on a different cluster, for example, to locate it closer to where your Kafka installation is, you can install a stand-alone Event Gateway.
