Qpoint Proxy supports several deployment methods, each adaptable for different operational environments and capable of local configuration:

  1. Linux Binary: Install Qpoint Proxy directly on Linux or Darwin systems using a binary. This method is ideal for environments where direct software management is required. Configure the proxy locally by using the --qpoint-config flag to specify a local YAML configuration file (proxy-config.yaml) that defines the proxy's behavior, routes, and security settings.

  2. Docker Container: Deploy Qpoint Proxy in Docker to leverage the benefits of containerization, which provides isolation and easy scalability. Configure the container locally by mounting a volume that contains the proxy-config.yaml file and specifying it in the Docker run command using the --qpoint-config flag. This approach allows for dynamic application of settings without rebuilding the container image.

  3. Helm Chart: Utilize a Helm chart for deploying Qpoint Proxy within Kubernetes clusters. This method streamlines the management of complex deployments and scales seamlessly. Local configuration can be achieved by customizing the Helm values file to include the path to your local proxy-config.yaml file, ensuring that configurations are applied during the Helm deployment process.
