Downsizing Orient Me

First of all: This is not supported by IBM and also not intended for a production environment!

Orient Me 6.0.0.1 does not run on a 4 core virtual machine which means that I’m not able to run it locally on my notebook. Therefore I searched for a solution to downgrade Orient Me to be able to install it locally. Thanks to Ben who also blogged about this.

Below you will find instructions how to install a smaller deployment based on Orient Me 6.0.0.1. You can also use the customized yml files to downsize an already installed environment (just compare them against your deployment).

Please download the customized yml files here. You will need them to deploy the custom installation.

Steps:

After finishing these steps you will have a working Orient Me installation with one instance for every microservice. Only MongoDB will be deployed using the original script because I had some issues after downsizing it. I will dig deeper into the MongoDB configuration to hopefully find a solution for this too.

Once again: Not supported. Not for production environments.
