Hello Colleagues !
In this blog, we shall look into the components of an SAP Cloud Platform Integration(f.k.a HCI) landscape. This blog is part of the architectural overview of SAP Cloud Platform Integration. You can find all the blogs over here.
SAP Cloud Platform Integration Nodes
At the core of SAP Cloud Platform Integration are integration nodes that run on the SAP Cloud Platform . Each node is a virtual machine instance. We have two types of nodes and each node performs a different function.
A worker node performs all the message processing while a tenant management node functions as a supervisor for the worker nodes. Tenant Management Nodes can bring up worker nodes, ensure it is up and running all the time, and keeps a repository of all your integration artifacts. You can picture the node architecture like the one below:
The simplified diagram maps to the following view that you shall see in the Node explorer:
SAP Cloud Platform Integration Components
All components that make up the SAP Cloud Platform Integration is given below –
- An Eclipse based tool-set allows integration developers to create and model integration flows. The Eclipse-based tool-set also provides integration administrators tools to administer and monitor the integration flows. (Integration flows are visual-based artifacts that an integration developer models)
- A Web-based IDE provides you the tool-set quickly configure and deploy integration flows.SAP Cloud Platform Integration comes with a host of pre-packaged integration flows that you can discover using the Web-based IDE. Discover the integration flows for your requirement, configure them for your requirements, and deploy them to the runtime.
- Integration Nodes that house a powerful, secure and scalable runtime – and a repository to store the cloud artifacts.
