How do Centerprise client and server communicate?¶
Client and server in Astera Centerprise communicate on REST architecture. REST-compliant systems, often called RESTful systems, are characterized by statelessness and separate concerns of client and server which means that the implementation of both can be done independent of each other, if each side knows what format of messages to send to the other.
The record of communication between Centerprise client and server is stored in a repository. Before you start using on Centerprise, a repository must be set up to store the records of deployed jobs. Currently Centerprise supports SQL server and PostgreSQL for building cluster databases, which can then be used for maintaining the repository. It is where information about job logs, job queues, and job schedules are saved.
