Viakoo OnPremises (VoP) is a packaged version of the Viakoo Cloud service to run within your own infrastructure. It is designed to be installed on a single server running VmWare ESX virtualization software or VSphere Cluster of ESXi Servers. Within, there are several virtual machines running different components of the service. VOP requires a robust hardware and network environment as well as complex preparation and Viakoo Professional Services to do the product installation and updates. This section covers best practices around infrastructure configuration, preparation for the service installation and then the special instructions to activate sites to a VoP service.
