Before You Deploy

Before you deploy Solstice, here are 5 key considerations for any Solstice deployment that you should keep in mind:

  • How will the Pods be attached to your network(s)?
  • How should the Pods be configured from a security standpoint?
  • How will users discover and connect to the Pods?
  • How should the Pods be configured, functionally and visually?
  • How will the deployment be managed?

If you are preparing for a large deployment, we encourage you to schedule your deployment with our Mersive Customer Onboarding team so that we can stage resources to support the on-site deployment team.
