Sisense provides a deployment script that you can use to deploy Sisense in your Azure environment. The script deploys Sisense with one build node and two app/query nodes on Azure AKS with NetApp shared storage. The script contains predefined values that you should replace with your environment's values to perform the following steps:

  1. Create a resource group.
  2. Configure Azure AKS with 3 nodes each with 8 Cores, 32GB Ram, 150GB Disk (Configurable).
  3. Define a NetApp account to be used.
  4. Create a NetApp Pool.
  5. Create Volumes in NetApp.
  6. Download and Deploy Sisense in Azure.
    After running the script in the Azure CLI, Sisense will be deployed in your Azure environment.
