Download the InterSystems IRIS Image

Download the InterSystems IRIS Image

To make the InterSystems IRIS image from InterSystems available for use in this hands-on, you must download the image to the system you are working on. The following alternatives describe the InterSystems IRIS images that are or may be available to you.

  • You can use an InterSystems IRIS Community Edition image from the InterSystems Container Registry (ICR), which includes repositories for all images available from InterSystems and is described in Using the InterSystems Container Registry. You can also download the Community Edition image from Docker Hub.

    InterSystems IRIS Community Edition comes with a free built-in 13-month license (and some functionality restrictions); if you use Community Edition in this hands-on, you won’t have to provide a license key as described in the next step (Add the License Key to the External Storage Location). For more information, see Deploy InterSystems IRIS Community Edition on Your Own System in Deploy and Explore InterSystems IRIS.

    Note:

    Another option is to provision a cloud node hosting a running InterSystems IRIS Community Edition container on GCP, AWS, or Azure; for more information, see Deploy InterSystems IRIS Community Edition on a Cloud Node in Deploy and Explore InterSystems IRIS. If you use a Community Edition cloud node in this exercise, you can skip the next two steps and go to Change the Instance and Commit the Container as a New Image.

  • If you are an InterSystems customer, you can use a released InterSystems IRIS image from the InterSystems Container Registry (ICR). Using the InterSystems Container Registry lists the InterSystems IRIS images available from the IRC and explains how to use your WRC credentials to authenticate to the registry so you can download one.

  • Your organization may have a private image registry that includes one or more InterSystems IRIS images. If so, obtain the location of the registry and the repository and tag for the image you need, as well as the credentials needed for access.

When you have identified the registry you want to download from and the credentials you need (if any), see Downloading the InterSystems IRIS Image in Running InterSystems Products in Containers for instructions for downloading the InterSystems IRIS image.

For simplicity, these instructions assume you are working with the image intersystems/iris:2021.1.0.205.0.
