OpenShift deployment strategies

There are three related strategies for deploying OneAgent on OpenShift, that build upon one another, and offer advantages that are contextual to an organization's standards and preferences.

All three strategies deploy the OneAgent DaemonSet on OpenShift nodes. The DaemonSet is responsible for injecting OneAgent Operator in OpenShift.
The lifecycle of the DaemonSet is typically managed by OneAgent Operator, though you can also choose to deploy the DaemonSet directly using Puppet, Chef, Ansible, or another configuration management tool.

Dynatrace also offers the OneAgent Operator as a Helm chart, if you prefer to use Helm as a package manager. Helm generates both the Operator deployment and the CRD for OneAgent dynamically. This suits perfectly for basic installations of the OneAgent Operator.

Finally, if you don't have access to the infrastructure layer, Dynatrace also provides the option of application-only monitoring.
