Note: The Enterprise Edition of Ant Media Server requires a valid license to use the software beyond the initial 14 day free trial period. To purchase a license, visit Ant Media’s website and select a plan that fits your needs. Licenses are not available directly through Linode. Alternatively, you can deploy the free Ant Media Server Community Edition Marketplace App.

Deploying the Ant Media Marketplace App

The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager.

  1. Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Compute Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.
  2. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.
  3. Fill out all required Options for the selected app as well as any desired Advanced Options (which are optional). See the Configuration Options section for details.
  4. Complete the rest of the form as discussed within the Getting Started > Create a Linode.
  5. Click the Create Linode button. Once the Linode has provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the Linode is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail. To determine if the installation has completed, open the Linode’s Lish console and wait for the system login prompt to appear.
  6. Follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section.

Software installation should complete within 5-10 minutes after the Linode has finished provisioning.
