Apex Central can be built on a cloud environment (such as AWS, Azure, etc.), but certain requirements should be met. This article specifies the requirements to setup Apex Central in a cloud environment.
To build Apex Central on a cloud environment, the following items should be noted:
- Apex Central and its database (i.e. SQL server) can be placed in cloud environment if it is installed on Virtual Machines (VM).
- Network connections between Apex Central server and managed products or AD servers should be firm and stable. Trend Micro does not guarantee fixes for performance issues in a cloud environment, if it is caused by network problems.
- Open the ports used by Apex Central for communications. Refer to this article.
- Leveraging Cloud Database as a service from cloud provider (e.g. Azure SQL database) is currently not supported.
