Users wanting to operate Instana’s service quality engine can install it on premises, or on prem for short. The functionality between either SaaS or on prem is exactly the same because the code base never changes. However, do take into consideration that the backend must be sized properly in order to effectively deploy an on prem environment. Do not worry, we will assist if any problems happen to come up. Please contact us to get the needed credentials to deploy Instana on prem.
Once you have contacted us, we also have these resources that help guide users through the installation itself:
- Package-based Installation
- Package-based Operations
- Outbound Network Access Requirements
- License Activation and Renewal
- On Prem Website Monitoring
- Activating Debug Mode
Instead of Instana’s built-in authorization, on-prem installations can use LDAP.
Once Instana is deployed on your server, you need to activate your license and then you are good to go.
