Nodinite Installation Overview

Eager to get started? Contact one of our existing Partners or contact us at business@nodinite.com for guidance and recommendations to quickly get you started.

Nodinite is a software product that must be installed and configured in each customer/partner instance. Each instance is unique and guarantees isolation, performance and so on between individual environments.

Nodinite uses many software components with different requirements depending on intended usage (Like security policies, high availability, performance, network isolation, ...):

Execution with a small footprint

  • Run everything on a single box (perfect for POCs and if you only have Monitoring needs)
    • local Virtual machines or in the cloud (simple and low costs)

Enterprise grade installations

  • Run everything everywhere with multiple distributed environments mixed with different domains, networks, in the cloud and line of business systems on-premise
    • Additional CPUs and memory increase performance. Nodinite uses many concurrent threads and benefits from additional CPUs
    • Windows fail-over cluster
    • SQL Server fail-over cluster and/or Always on
      • Use multiple disks/LUNs to increase SQL performance

Before you start anything else, read our Planning Guide. You must know what to do...

Install and Update Tool

With the Nodinite Install and Update tool, you can manage all configured instances. The main benefit for our Partners with Managed Services offering thereby has less administration and a full overview of all their customers.

Note: Many of our customers have chosen to fully separate the different environments with one instance of the Install and Update Tool for each environment.

To reach the tool you can try the default address http://localhost/NodiniteUpdate/UpdateClient/ (The actual address can always be found in the IIS MMC). Overview


From the Install and Update tool, an administrator Installs new instances, performs Updates and manages access rights.
