What modes are available for deploying CAST Imaging?

Overview

CAST Imaging is flexible and can be installed in a number of different ways to suit your organization’s requirements:

  • Direct on Microsoft Windows (virtual or physical machines)
    • All on one machine
    • Distributed across multiple machines (load balancing)
  • Within Docker containers
    • Backend on Linux
    • Node(s) direct on Microsoft Windows (single or multiple (load balancing))

CAST then divides these different deployment modes into two distinct categories:

Standalone

This mode is installed on one single Microsoft Windows machine and this means that it is ideal for POCs or testing purposes - or occasionally very small production deployments.

Enterprise mode

This “microservices architecture” mode is aimed at large production deployments where multiple machines are used to distribute the load and improve performance for end-users.
