Can someone provide the steps how to configure Weaviate on a VM and steps to configure HA
Hi @sri-postgres-cassand ! Welcome to our community
While we still suggest running Weaviate using Docker or K8s, you can always run it directly from the binary.
for that, you can download the binary from our github page, for example:
I have just downloaded, for instance, as I am running on mac:
now, inside this zip you have Weaviate’s binary. You can make it executable:
chmod + x weaviate
and now run Weaviate directly thru the binary, defining the bare minimum, like so:
./weaviate --host 0.0.0.0 --port '8080' --scheme http
Let me know if this helps
Thank you Very Much @DudaNogueira . This helped to configure a Weaviate standalone instance on a VM.
I think it would be better if there is a way to configure Replication and Horizontal Scaling on VM along with Docker and K8s.
For K8s you can use our helm. Adding replicas is a matter of changing the values and deployig:
For docker, you can generate your docker compose using the configurator tool:
Then adapt it to spin multiple nodes, changing the necessary env variables.
