Cloudify Community

The Cloudify free community version contains a fully functional Cloudify engine & most of the manager capabilities (read about the differences between our Cloudify versions). The community version is available as an rpm, OpenStack Image or as a Docker based container. This page describes the complete setup flow to run Cloudify Community manager as a Docker container.

Step 1: Install the Cloudify Manager as a Docker container

Deploying Cloudify Community manager as a Docker container is the easiest way to go. This tutorial assumes that you have Docker installed on a local or a remote machine.

Open your terminal and create/start the Docker container

docker run -d -p 80:80 cloudifyplatform/community-cloudify-manager-aio:latest

it can take up to 1 minute unitl all the services in the docker container will be initiated and the manager will be up and running.

Verify that your manager is running by browsing to localhost when running locally, or to the hosting machine IP when the Docker server is remote.

The Cloudify login page should be displayed.


Note: the default login username and password is admin/admin

Step 2: Install your first deployment on your new Cloudify Manager

Check out your new Cloudify Manager by installing the Local Hello-World Example Deployment.

This example demonstrates how you can use Cloudify to easily install a local HTTP server with a hello-world page on it.

Step 3: (Optional) - Setup your command line interface (CLI)

Cloudify offers multiple user interfaces. All orchestration actions can be performed from the Management Console UI you have logged into in Step 2, however in many cases a CLI access from your Mac, Windows, or Linux station is easier.

Follow these instructions to deploy your CLI.

Congratulations! you now have your Cloudify Manager ready.
