  • Application and Websoft9 Console deployed on different server instances(coming soon)

Compute Resource Utilization Options

  • Single server deployed with a single application
  • Single server deployed with multiple applications
  • Single application deployed in a k8s cluster across multiple servers(coming soon)

Server Management Options

  • User manages the server independently
  • User delegates full server management to Websoft9
