Analytics Director provides two main functions:

  • Creation of Configuration Drives (.iso) required for deploying the Ribbon Analytics cluster on KVM, VMware, and AWS platforms. The generated Configuration Drive is downloaded and transferred to a VM host for Ribbon Analytics VM creation.
  • Installation of Ribbon Analytics. In release 20.10 and earlier, Analytics Director provides a CLI for automated installation of Ribbon Analytics on KVM. In release 20.12, the Analytics Director UI automates the installation of Ribbon Analytics on KVM and VMware. 

    Availability: Since 20.12


The Analytics Director UI is an easy-to-use interface that can accessed through any standard browser.
