Indico Documentation Overview

A Juju charm deploying and managing Indico on Kubernetes. Indico is an open-source tool for event organisation, archival and collaboration.

This charm simplifies initial deployment and “day N” operations of Indico on Kubernetes, such as scaling the number of instances, integration with SSO, access to S3 for redundant file storage and more. It allows for deployment on many different Kubernetes platforms, from MicroK8s to Charmed Kubernetes and public cloud Kubernetes offerings.

As such, the charm makes it easy for those looking to take control of their own events management system whilst keeping operations simple, and gives them the freedom to deploy on the Kubernetes platform of their choice.

For DevOps or SRE teams this charm will make operating Indico simple and straightforward through Juju’s clean interface. It will allow easy deployment into multiple environments for testing of changes, and supports scaling out for enterprise deployments.
