Scuba Lite is a full-stack customer experience analysis platform that offers a time series data warehouse, a built-in query engine, and a no-code UI. Our time series data warehouse only requires that your data set has a timestamp and at a minimum one shard key (there can be multiple shard keys if needed). Although not required, we also highly encourage that the data be stateful, so each row has an identifier of an event occurring at that timestamp. This allows Scuba’s platform to easily analyze sequences of customer interactions over time.

When beginning your deployment there are three main steps:

  • Basic Information

  • Selecting Web App Settings

  • Reviewing and Creating Scuba Lite

After you have deployed Scuba Lite, please feel free to move on to our Scuba Lite Data Import document to bring your own data in.

Basic Information

  1. Select your subscription

    1. All resources in an Azure subscription are billed together.

  2. Select resource group from the dropdown or create new

    1. A resource group is a collection of resources that share the same lifecycle, permissions, and policies. Your Scuba deployment will live in this resource group.

  3. Select your region. This selection will determine where the machines hosting Scuba Lite will be deployed.

    1. Choose the Azure region that's right for you and your customers. Not every resource is available in every region.

  4. Enter your name, email, company name, industry, company size, and goals

  5. Select a name (this will be present in the URL of your Scuba Deployment)

    1. Enter a descriptive name for your Scuba app deployment (e.g. MyCompany). This combined with a unique identifier will form part of the public access URL.

  6. Select an application name

    1. This is the name used in your managed application menu.

  7. Select a managed resource group

    1. This resource group holds all the resources that are required by the managed application. For example, this resource group contains the virtual machines, storage accounts, and virtual networks for the solution. 

  8. Click Next: Web App Settings

Select Web App Settings

  1. Select your Virtual Machine Size

    1. The size of the virtual machine to be used. There are two available options for storage size:

      1. D4ds_v4 150 GB storage

      2. D8ds_v4 300 GB storage

  2. Choose a password

    1. This is the password you will use to log into the Scuba web application.

  3. Select to enable a demo data set

    1. Enabling the demo dataset will allow you to begin experimenting with Scuba's advanced data analytics platform right away.

    2. If you enable the demo data set, it takes roughly 5 minutes for the data to import and appear once the deployment process is complete. Please follow our user guides and videos for an in-depth look into how to use and query in Scuba.

  4. Click Next: Review + create >

Review + Create

  1. On the bottom left corner of the Review + Create page click Create

  2. Once your deployment is complete, open the dropdown for the Deployment Details tab. This should be at the center of the screen. Once the tab is located, select the resource you just created in Step 7 of the Basic Information section (this should be the application name selected in step 7 in the Basic Information section).

  3. On the left side panel select Parameters and Outputs under the Settings group

  4. Under the outputs section, you’ll see the web app URL

  5. Copy and paste the web app URL into your browser

  6. Enter the email address from Step 5 from the Basic Information section and the password created in Step 2 in the Web App Settings section

  7. You should now have access to the Scuba UI
