Cloud Installation Support with Kofax Capture

Does Kofax Capture support installations within the Cloud?


SolutionEdit section

Kofax Capture and Kofax Transformation Modules are not native cloud applications, however it is supported to run them in a virtual machine setup whether the virtual machine is in the cloud or on premise environment.

If physical scanning is required, this is not supported in the cloud or on a virtual machine setup. Therefore, a cloud implementation of Kofax Capture and/or Kofax Transformation Modules is not supported when physical scanning is required.  

ALL Kofax Capture & Transformation Modules components need to reside on a virtual machine in the cloud.

This means that all Servers and Workstations, including the Kofax Capture database, must reside in the same cloud environment.

The Kofax Support Statement on Virtual Computing applies to the use of standard Windows virtual machines with Microsoft Azure or Amazon AWS AMI.

Full support of cloud services (web roles, worker roles, auto scaling, etc.) is not supported unless explicitly stated.

The only supported way of using Kofax Capture in a cloud environment and use physical scanning is to install a Kofax Capture Network Server (KCNS) setup, where the main Kofax Capture Server (KCNS Central Site) resides in the cloud environment, while the KCNS Remote Site systems reside in the Local Area Network.  This allows physical scanning to be performed in the local area network and the images are passed from Remote Site workstations to the KCNS Central Site for further processing.

Note-Icon.png MAC Addresses in these environments can change and will require customers to have the License Server address fixed periodically.  The Kofax Capture License Server requires a fixed (static) MAC Address.
