Install API7 Enterprise

This tutorial walks you through installing API7 Enterprise in Docker using the quickstart script.

The installation will include the API7 Enterprise components, data plane, control plane, dashboard, and external components, PostgreSQL and Prometheus, for managing configuration and monitoring, respectively.


In this guide, a containerized all-in-one solution for Proof of Concept (PoC) tests is provided, including PostgreSQL and Prometheus. This eliminates the need for manual database and monitoring setup, streamlining your PoC process.

For production deployments, API7 Enterprise also supports MySQL and OceanBase in place of PostgreSQL. Please contact API7 experts to get solutions for high availability and scalability.
