Docker Compose

"Docker Compose" offers a simple method for starting a set of Diana services. All Diana services are standalone containers connected to the Neon AI RabbitMQ server. 

Diana is the starting point for Neon AI backend components and tools, many of which are user configurable. Diana generates resources for both Docker and Kubernetes. The following instructions are provided to download Neon AI Docker Containers, Diana Services and the Diana Backend Server. 

Diana commands include:

  • Automatically Configure a Diana Backend
  • Configure Optional HTTP Backend Services
  • Generate Kubernetes Secrets Authorization Variables
  • Generate a Kubernetes ConfigMap for RabbitMQ
  • Start / Stop a Diana Backend


For deployment, Kubernetes provides a managed solution that can handle containerization, scaling, rolling updates and more benefits. Diana deployment works with your existing clusters, managed by your system administrator using the NGINX Ingress Controller. For deploying locally, you can use MetalLB to configure a LoadBalancer.

A Diana backend can be configured automatically with the Diana configure-backend command. This will generate k8s_secret_mq-config.yml, k8s_config_rabbitmq.yml, and kubernetes.yml spec files, including creating an instance of RabbitMQ via Docker.  

Resources for Kubernetes and OpenShift can be generated for deploying containers under infrastructures using Docker Compose.
