Privacera Documentation

Privacera Manager overview

Privacera Manager (PM) is an installation framework for installing and updating Privacera Platform components. Privacera Manager provides a framework, process, installation components, configuration scripts, and property files for deploying, installing, and managing the deployment of all other Privacera Platform components.


In addition to the core Privacera functions (Discovery, Access Management, and Ecryption), Privacera Manager provides:

  • Integration with your data repository systems

  • Authentication integration (AD/LDAP)

  • Optional SSO

  • Security

  • Audit logging

Privacera Manager provides individual configuration files for each of these functions.

Privacera Manager deployment overview

Using Privacera Manager is similar to deployments on all Cloud Providers and Native Clouds, with some differences based on the Cloud providers native capabilities and services. The first step in deploying Privacera Manager is to determine the Cloud platform that it will be operating in.


The second step is to choose preferred deployment type depending on your deployment objectives, cloud platform, data repository types, and Privacera components. Privacera Manager itself is deployed using Docker with Docker Compose. Once Privacera Manager is in place, it runs and deploys Privacera Platform components either as Docker containers or within a Kubernetes cluster.

  • Docker/Docker Compose: The right choice for 'single-node' configurations. A single-node, Docker deployed Privacera Platform uses fewer resources, but may not scale as well. This is ideal for PoC and not recommended for production.

  • Kubernetes: A Kubernetes deployed Privacera Platform may use more resources but will scale, taking advantage of Kubernetes' ability to expand and add computation, memory, and storage resourcesas needed.
