Hardware Requirements

The hardware requirements for Data Control Tower are listed below. In addition to these requirements, inbound port 443 must be open for API clients, and outbound port 443 to engines.

CPU: 4-Core
Memory: 2GB
Storage: 50GB
Port: 443

Installation Requirements (Docker Compose)

DCT requires Docker and Docker Compose to run, thus, Linux versions and distributions that have been verified to work with Docker are supported. To see a list of supported distributions, please reference this Docker article.

This example uses a Docker installation and is completed on an Ubuntu 20.04 VM.

To begin, uninstall any old versions of Docker.

sudo apt-get remove docker docker-engine containerd runc

Next, update the package lists and install Docker.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install

Last, install Docker Compose.

sudo curl -L "$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Docker-Compose is packaged with Docker engine version 20.10.15 and up.

Running Docker as Non-Root (Optional)

To avoid prefacing the Docker command with sudo, create a Unix group called docker and add users to it. When the Docker daemon starts, it creates a Unix socket accessible by members of the Docker group. See Docker Post Installation documentation for details.

sudo groupadd docker
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

Unpack and Install DCT

Once Docker and Docker Compose are installed, DCT can be installed. Begin by downloading the latest version of the tarball from the Delphix Download site. Next, transfer the file to the Linux machine where Docker is installed. Run the following commands to extract the containers and load them into Docker:

tar -xzf delphix-dct*.tar.gz
for image in *.tar; do sudo docker load --input $image; done


To run DCT, navigate to the location of the extracted docker-compose.yaml file from the tarball and run the following command. Using -d in the command will start up the application in the background.

sudo docker-compose up -d

Running docker ps should show 9 containers up and running:

sudo docker ps
