Installation Best Practices

Immuta SaaS

Use Immuta SaaS to automate installation, backups, and disaster recovery. Other benefits include

  • receiving new features as they are released.
  • Immuta managing scaling and infrastructure.

Immuta Self-Managed

Use Kubernetes for scaling

To use Kubernetes effectively,

  • Identify a team to set up, configure, and maintain a Kubernetes environment. Immuta will help you with the installation of our platform, but the Kubernetes environment is your company's responsibility. Review Kubernetes best practices here.
  • Use persistent volumes.
  • Use the Immuta-provided default Nginx Ingress Controller. You can use your own, but the setup and management is outside of Immuta‚Äôs responsibility.

Back up your environment

For on-prem instances,

  • Configure backups to run daily.
  • Test your backups at least once a month.
  • Use cloud storage (e.g., S3, ADLS, GCS).
  • Create the proper IAM roles and IAM permissions (if using IAM roles). Your backups will fail if this is not configured correctly.
