Dashboard

The start page of EPAM Cloud Management Console from where users can navigate to various Cloud infrastructure management and monitoring functions.

The EPAM Cloud Management Console is a web UI solution providing access to EPAM Orchestrator over the Internet connection both inside and outside the corporate network. The Console is accessible at EPAM Cloud Website.

The Dashboard is a user-friendly intuitive navigation tool intended for users of different levels of expertise. The advantage of the Dashboard layout is that all important controls and widgets are gathered on the same screen and are easily accessible.

The Dashboard is available in both the desktop and mobile applications.

See the Cloud Management Console guide, Section 3, Cloud Dashboard, for details.

Data Center

Facility housing servers and other related equipment. In EPAM Cloud, different regions are served by different data centers.

Application level resiliency is provided by load balancing services between various data centers that are networked together to form an availability region. To achieve maximum resiliency, applications can be deployed into multiple data centers within an availability region.

See the Maestro CLI User Guide, Annex D, Service Locations, for details on regions available in EPAM Cloud.

DevOps

Software development methodology focused on collaboration and communication between software developers (Dev) and IT operations professionals (Ops). The DevOps approach is the most suitable for companies having frequent product releases.

DMZ

Demilitarized Zone, a physical or logical subnetwork separating the internal LAN of the company from other networks, usually the Internet. DMZ acts as an additional security perimeter for the internal LAN. DMZ hosts external-facing resources and services, while the rest of the internal LAN remains protected.

Using a DMZ is the recommended approach for any service provided to users over the Internet.

Docker

Open-source software allowing quick deployment of virtual environments, the so-called 'containers'. Each container holds an application together with other tools needed for the application to run. Containers are isolated and independent, thus ensuring additional security and reliability of the application within.

In EPAM Cloud, Docker containers can be used as virtual servers.

See the Services Guide for details on the Docker service configuration and use.

Visit Docker Official Website for details on Docker use.

Docker Swarm

Clustering solution by Docker. Docker Swarm joins several Docker engines into a single virtual engine. Such configuration supports high scalability and efficient performance.

In EPAM Cloud, when the Docker service is activated, one virtual machine serves as the master virtual machine and the entry point to the cluster. The same master machine operates as the hypervisor running Docker containers.

See the Services Guide for details on the Docker service configuration and use.

Visit Docker Official Website for details on Docker Swarm.

Dynamic Inventory

Ansible-supported solution of retrieving inventory from cloud sources.

See Using Ansible with EPAM Orchestrator for details.
