Organizations which choose to use self-managed deployments of GRAX are 100% responsible for design, deployment, and maintenance of their GRAX infrastructure. GRAX technical requirements and reference architecture are available to assist with the design process. Organizations are responsible for ensuring that their self-managed infrastructure meets the minimum requirements for GRAX to operate effectively. Minimum requirements to operate the GRAX product and utilization of underlying infrastructure resources are subject to change.

Self-managed deployments include:

  • 60 days of email deployment assistance with:
    • GRAX Application, logs, and telemetry set up
    • GRAX Binary troubleshooting using GRAX Logs
    • High-level architecture guidance in relation to reference architecture and minimum requirements
  • Choose and manage your own customer-owned infrastructure (AWS, Azure, GCP, on-prem, anywhere you’d like to run GRAX)
  • Customer-managed GRAX Application
  • External or GRAX access to infrastructure not required
  • Ability to self-customize VPC, AMI, OS, system agents, and/or firewall
  • Deployment registration with the GRAX Platform

Self-managed deployments do NOT include:

  • Construction, management, and ongoing operating costs of all infrastructure
  • Assistance with network failures, domain registration lapses, storage capacity issues, component failures, and improper configuration of the compute resources, which prevent software operation
  • Any deviations from the 60-day implementation period

We recommend that you work with your internal cloud infrastructure team, cloud vendor support or TAM, or with GRAX System Integrator and/or Enterprise Support partners if you require assistance with any customizations that are not included.
