Blog Post created by Andrew Nguyen Employee on Jan 18, 2017

 

The CA Identity Suite Virtual Appliance (vApp) lets you install and deploy Identity Management and Governance products and their associated services quickly with minimal effort. The vApp image is provided in an Open Virtualization Architecture format (OVA) that is compatible with modern Virtualization platforms (see the Platform Support Matrix).

The vApp features a flexible and modular design that provides multiple environment types (Demo, Development, Staging and Production) and support for High Availability (H/A). The vApp is based on a Linux O/S, using Wildfly as the application server and Oracle (Express Edition) as an embedded database (applicable for non-production environments only).

The Virtual Appliance product contains the following CA Identity Suite components:

  • CA Identity Manager 14.0
  • CA Identity Governance 14.0
  • CA Identity Portal 14.0
  • CA Directory 14.0 (User Store)
  • CA Identity Manager Provisioning Server 14.0
  • CA Identity Manager Connector Server 14.0
  • Oracle database 11g Express Edition

Estimated time of install if done in demo mode is ~20 min.
