From RSpace 1.69, we’re pleased to announce that it’s possible to run RSpace using Docker. This greatly simplifies installation and enables a running, fully featured RSpace in a few minutes.
Running RSpace on Docker will be useful in many cases, for example if you are:
A developer working with the RSpace API (e.g. an app developer, or script developers). Being able to use a sandbox instance of RSpace to test your applications/scripts against will speed up development and avoid polluting your RSpace account with documents generated in testing.
A potential customer wanting to evaluate RSpace on-premises and want to get started easily and quickly. Installing regular RSpace isn’t hugely difficult but does take some time and patience to configure.
A potential customer working exclusively in a Windows or MacOSX server environment that we don’t support native deployment for.
We are not yet recommending using RSpace-on-Docker for a full, heavily-used production system; we are still evaluating maintenance, backup and recovery SOPs.
For more details please look at the RSpace-on-Docker documentation or get in touch with us!
