Exivity can be easily deployed on any system running Windows Server 2016 or later.
Single Node System Architecture
In order to deploy a single node Exivity system, be aware of the following system architecture:
Example of single node deployment
All components can be installed on a single node. However, even in a single node deployment, it might be desirable to run a the PostgreSQL database on a diffent system. Apart from installing PostgreSQL from the Exivity installer, ths Exivity software is also compatible with any PostreSQL compatible database engine (PostgreSQL on Linux, Amazon RDS, CockroachDB, etc) in order to achieve High Availability or Load Balancing.
