Kiuwan On-Premises (KoP) is based on a client-server architecture that includes these major server components:
You can also install Kiuwan On-Premises under your own AWS cloud, replacing the provided infrastructure services with compatible AWS services.
Kiuwan On-Premises and its roles
Kiuwan On-Premises defines three different roles for each Kiuwan instance:
- Kiuwan front: receives and answers HTTPS requests, both for the web application and REST API calls.
- Kiuwan analyzer: processes analysis results asynchronously.
- Kiuwan scheduler: processes background tasks such as notifications and Kiuwan Insights database updates.
- Apache (loadbalancer): an Apache instance that balances the traffic between Kiuwan frontals (kept in the default installation to allow easy frontal scaling).
- Kiuwan front (wildfly-f1): a Kiuwan frontal.
- Kiuwan analyzer (wildfly-a1): a Kiuwan analyzer.
- Kiuwan scheduler (wildfly-s1): a Kiuwan scheduler.
- MySQL (mysql): the main Kiuwan database.
- Redis cluster (redis_0000[n]): redis store nodes. Used , used by Kiuwan as a data cache.
- Redis cluster creator (clustercreator): a temporal redis container that configures each Redis node as a cluster.
- Kiuwan updater (updater): a temporal Kiuwan instance that installs, updates and upgrades needed data or configuration.
- Keep all services in an all-in-one host installation.
- Under AWS, decide where each service will be installed, one by one (both kiuwan Kiuwan services and infrastructure, as long as you use AWS elasticache as Redis cluster).
- Externalize one, some or all of the provided non-Kiuwan services:
- Apache load balancer
