About AppDynamics Deployment
When starting out with AppDynamics, you may want to try deploying it in a small scale demonstration environment. Deploying AppDynamics to a full production environment introduces complexity, such as increased scale, with possibly hundreds of applications to monitor, non-traditional running environments such as Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) or virtualized systems, and complex network topologies.
AppDynamics was designed to handle this complexity, with support virtualized and PaaS systems and tools for deploying and maintaining large scale AppDynamics agent deployments.
You can deploy the AppDynamics Platform in the following forms:
- In a SaaS deployment, AppDynamics manages the server-side components of the AppDynamics Platform, including their installation and upgrades. You only need to install and manage agent-side components.
- In an on-premises, you install and manage all platform components.
The deployment type that is best for you depends on your requirements. For example, if you require all data to remain within your own IT infrastructure, an on-premises deployment is appropriate. If data can be located in the cloud, a SaaS deployment might be used instead.
For information on on-premises installations, see AppDynamics Platform.
Network Port Requirements
To deploy AppDynamics, you may need to modify the configuration of network components to permit access to ports used in the AppDynamics deployment. The following pages describe the specific ports used in the system:
