Self-hosted Landscape

Self-hosted Landscape

Self-hosted Landscape is the standalone edition of Landscape that you can install on premises, or in a public cloud.

Each major Landscape version is supported for a period of one year after release. Here are the currently supported releases:

MAJOR VERSION RELEASE DATE SUPPORTED UNTIL VERSION OF UBUNTU
19.10 2019-Oct 2022-Apr 18.04 LTS

ⓘ Note: Work is being done to allow self-hosted Landscape to run on Ubuntu 20.04 and 22.04. This version of Landscape is undergoing development and testing, and will be available in Q1 2023. Once Ubuntu 20.04 and 22.04 are supported, self-hosted Landscape will still continue to be supported on Ubuntu 18.04 until there has been sufficient time for customers to migrate their environment.

ⓘ Note: The Landscape client is available for all supported Ubuntu releases, independently of the self-hosted Landscape releases.

Installation

Self-hosted Landscape consists of two parts:

  • database server
  • application server

Depending on your deployment method, these may live on the same machine or different machines. Here is how you can get started:

Quickstart

  • Quickstart, for when you don’t have Juju but quickly want to check out On-Prem. Not recommended for production environments when having more than 500 clients.

Juju deployed

Manual installation

  • Manual installation: for when you don’t have a suitable Juju environment but need a scalable deployment.

Installation requirements

Network access

The machine(s) running as the application server will need the following network access:

  • https access to usn.ubuntu.com in order to download the USN database and detect security updates. Without this, the available updates won’t be distinguished between security related and regular updates
  • http access to the public Ubuntu archives and changelogs.ubuntu.com, in order to update the hash-id-database files and detect new distribution releases. Without this, the release upgrade feature won’t work
  • https access to landscape.canonical.com in order to query for available OPL releases. If this access is not given, the only drawback is that OPL won’t display a note about the available releases in the account page.
