The Yugabyte Platform is best fit for mission-critical deployments, such as production or pre-production testing. It starts out by first installing YugaWare, the YugabyteDB Admin Console in a highly available mode and then spinning up YugabyteDB clusters on one or more regions (across public cloud and private on-premise data centers).
YugaWare is a containerized application that is installed and managed using Replicated for mission-critical environments (such as production or performance or failure mode testing). Replicated is a purpose-built tool for on-premise deployments and life cycle management of containerized applications. For environments that are not mission-critical, such as those needed for local development or simple functional testing, you can also use YugabyteDB.
