VISULOX can be connected to a data center in many different ways.
In general, the solution will be provided in the DMZ of the company. Any Internet incoming traffic ends at the firewall, only the HTTPS traffic is directed further to the OSGD systems.
Proof Of Concept
This is the simplest integration. It consists of a server on which both OSGD as well as the VISULOX are installed. The database can be local or also separate. This variation is primarily used to become familiar with the properties of OSGD and VISULOX. It includes no system redundancy.
Redundant Small Setup
This design includes two servers. Both OSGD as well as VISULOX is installed on each of them. The database is made available externally. The solution can be accessed using the OSGD software load balancer “VISULOX Virtual Interface” under a URL. This thus creates a redundant configuration. In the event of a server outage, Remote Access Service is automatically provided for the pUser over the remaining server.
Enterprise Solution Setup > 100 User
As the number of pUser and thus also the number of applications is to be monitored, it may be useful to make separation of OSGD and VISULOX.
The OSGD and VISULOX systems are still redundant. Depending on the load of the subcomponents , the processes within OSGD and VISULOX always be distributed on the system with the least load.
Distributed Enterprise Datacenter Setup
One of the advantages of OSGD is that the communication is bandwidth friendly.
This will be undermined in the case of distributed data centers. A further OSGD environment before the second data center can be of help. With the OSGD function “Intelligent Array Routing” the applications in the data center are then routed via the respective OSGD system. OSGD and VISULOX thereby represent a redundant array composite. The metadata is stored on the external global database.
Extended Secured Enterprise Setup
The security can be enhanced in all preceded integration descriptions through the switching of OSGD gateways. A three-zone concept, which is required by many projects, results from a standard two-zone concept.
