Running Jetpack components outside of docker



I’m currently evaluating Jetpack and was wondering if it’s possible to run XL Release/XL Deploy outside of their containers. If I were to install XL Release standalone ( would a Jetpack license work?

If not, and running in a container is required, would I be able to use an external DB/configuration/plugin folder/etc… with my install?



Hi Brett,

The XL JetPack license is only available when you’re running the components in containers. To run them outside of containers, you’ll need XebiaLabs DevOps Platform licenses, which you can grab here.

Using an external database with the containers is fine; you just have to be sure that the containers can reach the DB. For performance reasons, it’s best to have the containers and the DB in the same network.


You can find info about mounting other directories (like the plugins directory) as volumes here and here.
