Unified Qlik Sense Enterprise and QlikView Cloud Platform - Multi-Cloud
Article Number: 000090932 | Last Modified: 2020/04/30
This session takes a closer look and demonstrates the integration of the following: - Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows - Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes - Using QlikView documents on Qlik Sense Hub - Cloud / Multi-Cloud Architecture - Unified License
Q&A - A Unified Qlik Sense Enterprise and QlikView Cloud Platform Q: What do we do if we have a secure environment that has a zero-tolerance policy for communication to the outside? I have a client that wants to go subscription, but internet access and a proxy are out of the question. A: Our License Service supports Offline Mode, however you will lose the ability to share a license across multiple sites. When it comes to deployment, you can fetch our images from the repository and store them in your own repository, which you can use to deploy inside the airgapped environment. For more information, please contact Professional Services / your Account Manager.
Q: Is there any limitation for the size of the apps transferred from onsite to Kubernetes? I have some clients with 16GB%2B on disk applications. A: By default there is an ingress limit of 500MB, which can be configured through the YAML file. This is currently being fixed for the next release. For more information and a defect reference, please see Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes - App Size Limits.
Q: Can apps be reloaded on Kubernetes now, when Windows Engine is turned off? A: As mentioned during the session, once distributed to Kubernetes, the apps will become read only. Only apps created natively on Kubernetes can be reloaded there. However, once the app is published and distributed, it will receive new data from reloads on Windows, which will be displayed automatically once new data is received.
Q: Hi, is it possible de deploy an app, directly in a space ? Thanks A: This functionality is coming soon :)
Q: Is the capabilities and engine apis supported in Qlik on Kubernetes in the same way as on Windows for imbedded apps? A: Yes, however the full API capabilities may not be the same, please always verify with Qlik Help and Support.
Q: Once published, if the application reloads on Windows will the update be detected and the republished to kubernetes to keep the data xcurrent A: YES! The app can continue to be reloaded on Windows and new data will be synced to Kubernetes automatically.
Q: Will we be able to import and use QlikView document in Qlik Sense Enterprise Hub for in-house installation? A: YES! This feature is coming soon :)
Q: Are extensions supported ? A: Yes, however not all extensions are compatible. You may find that some extensions are missing once you distribute an application. If you have issues, please see this article, it may be due to security context errors: Qlik Sense on Kubernetes: Some extensions cannot be imported
Q: In the default helm script the deployment uses standard disks and blobs for persistance. If you change that you get an an error message. Is it possible to change to premium storage? A: Multiple storage solutions are supported, premium or otherwise. Please consult our documentation as well as Kubernetes documentation on how to define your own storage classes and volumes. All you have to specify in the YAML file is your storageClass name for QSEoK to use that as storage. One basic requirement: ReadWriteMany MUST be supported and enabled on the destination storage. Also consider your SAN’s throughput, it’s important to have fast, low-latency access to storage.
Q: How the current QS cloud business architecture is different from QS Enterprise in cloud? A: The architecture is very similar, however our Cloud Services use a multi-tennant model, instead of using one deployment per customer.
Q: Sorry, but I have to ask again. If the applikation will be updatet on Windows site it will be also updatet on the other side, right? A: YES! Data is updated automatically to Kubernetes and will be refreshed on screen even if the app is open and being used.
Q: Probably a basic question. If we have a QS Enterprise on Windows, why do we want to distribute apps to Kubernetes? Is it to utilize the benefits of Cloud ? A: Kubernetes offers endless scaling and orchestration capabilities to match your demand. It can also be used to offer anonymous external access to apps in a scalable way, for example.
