Obtaining Triton DataCenter
This document explains how licensed customers can obtain the supported version of Triton DataCenter and provides links for open source downloads.
Joyent customers must only use the supported version of Triton on their licensed hardware. The supported version can only be obtained from Joyent Support. Typically this is done via a support ticket at help.joyent.com and both new and existing customers can raise a ticket to obtain the latest version for any new installations.
Joyent Support will also supply all necessary instructions for applying any post-installation updates and future updates as they become available.
Although the software supplied to Joyent Triton customers is built from the same sources as the software made available in the open source repositories, there are some key differences, which make it essential that Joyent Triton customers only obtain their software through Joyent Support.
The builds/releases supplied to Joyent Triton customers have been through formal QA testing and have been deployed in Triton Compute Service before being released.
The Joyent Triton USB images offered to our customers contain certain firmware binaries for use with Joyent-branded hardware. We cannot make that software generally available in the open source builds; however, it is available to all who have purchased Joyent-branded hardware and is of no use without that hardware.
- The upgrade procedures have been tested and verified against the builds that have been released to Joyent Triton customers by Joyent Support.
Open source builds are available from the public Joyent Development manta build directory; these can be downloaded either via the Manta CLI Tools or directly via curl.
Using the manta tools:
mget -O /Joyent_Dev/public/SmartDataCenter/usb-latest.tgz
- Without the manta tools:
curl -C - -O https://us-east.manta.joyent.com/Joyent_Dev/public/SmartDataCenter/usb-latest.tgz
From this point, all setup, installation, and configuration steps for the open source software mirror those of the supported software with the exception of the DevOps/End-User Portal which is only available to licensed customers.
