Flow Deployment Architecture

Before we get started, it is important to understand the various components that Flow consists of. Flow is made up of installed components, deployed components and plug-in components.

Installed Components

  • Flow Bootstrap – communication between all Flow components and modules
  • Flow Config – configuration environment, create events, measures, calculations, monitor system
  • Flow Client – manual entry of data, validate and update data where required

Deployed Components

  • Flow Platform – coordination between components in a Flow System
  • Flow Engine – automatic data source retrieval, calculation execution and limit evaluation
  • Flow Client Server – communication between the Flow System and Flow Client
  • Flow Report Server – Web-based Report and Dashboard Server
  • Flow Database – Microsoft SQL Server database to structure and store the Flow System’s data. A Microsoft SQL Server installation is required in order to deploy a new Flow System.

The Flow System can be installed as a “stand-alone” system on a single machine, or it can be installed as a distributed system across multiple machines. A distributed system could be used for large systems where engine load balancing is required.
