Mist.io Marketplace App

Mist.io is an open source, multi-cloud management platform. Mist supports all popular infrastructure technologies including public clouds, private clouds, hypervisors, containers, and bare metal servers. It provides a unified interface for performing common management tasks like provisioning, orchestration, monitoring, automation, and cost analysis. It also comes with a RESTful API so you can easily integrate it in your existing workflows.

Deploy Mist.io with Marketplace Apps

Linode’s App Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager. To access Linode’s App Marketplace:

  1. Log in to your Linode Cloud Manager account.

  2. From the Linode dashboard, click on the Marketplace button in the left-hand navigation menu.

  3. The Linode creation page appears, with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  4. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy:

  5. Once you have selected the app, proceed to the app’s Options section and provide values for the required fields.

RegionThe region where you would like your Linode to reside. In general, it’s best to choose a location that’s closest to you. For more information on choosing a DC, review the How to Choose a Data Center guide. You can also generate MTR reports for a deeper look at the network routes between you and each of our data centers. Required.
Linode PlanYour Linode’s hardware resources. An 8GB Linode is recommended for your Mist.io App. The Linode plan that you select should be appropriate for the amount of data transfer, users, storage, and other stress that may affect the performance of server. Required
Linode LabelThe name for your Linode, which must be unique between all of the Linodes on your account. This name will be how you identify your server in the Cloud Manager’s Dashboard. Required.
Root PasswordThe primary administrative password for your Linode instance. This password must be provided when you log in to your Linode via SSH. The password must meet the complexity strength validation requirements for a strong password. Your root password can be used to perform any action on your server, so make it long, complex, and unique. Required

When you’ve provided all required Linode Options, click on the Create button. Your Mist.io app will complete installation anywhere between 5-15 minutes after your Linode has finished provisioning.

Getting Started After Deployment

Once the Mist.io server is successfully created, a few additional steps must be completed to be able to begin using the application.

Log In to Mist.io

  1. In a web browser, enter your Linode’s IP address or the Domain associated with it to access your Mist.io App’s login screen.

  2. Click on the Sign in button at the top right of the page.

  3. Enter your Mist admin Email Address and Password in their respective fields to complete the log-in process.

Next Steps

After creating your account, create a name for your organization, Add Clouds to manage, as well as any separate virtual machines, containers, and more.
