TTN3 components on dedicated server and in a cluster

Hello, everyone,

I would like to use TTN3 productively. I went through the following instructions https://thethingsstack.io/v3.8.6/getting-started/installation/ and managed to install TTN3. What I don’t like about this installation is that all components are installed on only one server. However, I would like to have a separate dedicated server for each component, like this:

  • join server
  • application server
  • gateway server
  • network server
  • identity server
  • redis server
  • cockroach server

For the databases (redis & cockroach) this is quite simple as I can just install them on sperate server and specify the ip address and the port in the according yml file. However, I do not know how to do it for all the other components.

Additionally I could see in the documentation (https://thethingsstack.io/v3.8.6/getting-started/installation/) that it is possible to run TTN3 in a cluster. Therefore keys have to be generated and shared. But I don’t know where and how I have to generate this key.

Do any of you have any experience and can give me tips that help me to run TTN3 with dedicated servers ?

Thank you very much.

Christoph

The Things Stack comes with basic support for running services on different servers. You can find the configuration options for that on https://thethingsstack.io/latest/reference/configuration/the-things-stack/#cluster-options.

High Availability (multiple instances of each component) is not included in the open source edition of The Things Stack. If you need this, you can take a look at The Things Enterprise Stack.
