Deploy Managed File Transfer in Your Private Cloud
To satisfy corporate governance or security requirements, deploy Thru in a private Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
- Load balancer preferably a web application firewall (WAF)
- Application server handles emails and email notifications
- Data server manages data movement by finding pending jobs and completing them
- Core server acts similarly to the data server by completing pending jobs
- Web server Internet Information Services (IIS)
- File storage
- Database: Microsoft SQL
- Authentication service
High availability requires multiple web servers and a fault-tolerant load balancer. All components in Azure and AWS have some form of fault tolerance. Our SQL, storage, active directory and other components do not have a single point of failure.
To ensure disaster recovery, set up two environments; the primary system should be able to fail over from the production environment to the high availability environment. A function is triggered each minute or so to check availability of the current environment. If it is not available, another function is invoked to failover to the other environment.
Post-installation support for Thru is available but you are responsible for maintaining your private cloud.
Thru makes release management easy, auditable and compliant. Simplified release management ensures consistent release promotion to your instance of Thru.
