Standard Deployment Guide

What is a Standard Deployment?

The GRAX Platform leverages our Standard Deployments model to give you the fast pass to deploying GRAX on your own cloud environment. With this recommended deployment method, you completely control when and where GRAX is deployed. After that, GRAX manages ongoing monitoring and maintenance of the GRAX Application while you retain 100% ownership of your data and environment.

How do I create a Standard Deployment?

The GRAX Standard Deployment backs up your data in a few easy steps.

Standard AWS Deployment

  1. Create a team to manage deployments. The easiest approach is to have one team to manage everything:
    - MyCorp
    But you may create two teams to separate cloud accounts, deployments and team member access to resources:
    - MyCorp UAT
    - MyCorp Prod
  2. Switch to the proper team, then browse to Connections, then Connect AWS, then IAM Role Quick Deploy
    • Click through the AWS CloudFormation wizard, then find the ARN on the Outputs tab
    • Pass the ARN into the form and click Save
  3. Browse to Deployments, then New Deployment, then AWS, and pick your region etc. and Deploy
  4. Browse to Deployments, verify your deployment is Active, then click Open
  5. Click Connect with Auto Configuration and log into your Salesforce sandbox or production org

Standard Azure Deployment

  1. Create a team to manage deployments. The easiest approach is to have one team to manage everything:
    - MyCorp
    But you may create two teams to separate cloud accounts, deployments and team member access to resources:
    - MyCorp UAT
    - MyCorp Prod
  2. Create an Azure service principal that grants access to your Azure Subscription. The easiest way to do this is via the Azure CLI. Sample instructions can be found here.
  3. Switch to the proper team, then browse to Connections, then Connect Azure, then enter the credentials from above
  4. Browse to Deployments, then New Deployment, then Azure, and pick your region etc. and Deploy
  5. Browse to Deployments, verify your deployment is Active, then click Open
  6. Click Connect with Auto Configuration and log into your Salesforce sandbox or production org

Afterward, GRAX will continually back up your data, manage and update the GRAX Application, monitor deployment health, and automatically notify you about important backup, archive, seeding, and restore activity.
