3.0 Topology of Vibe Deployment Options

You can configure Micro Focus Vibe to run on a single server or multiple servers, depending on the size and needs of your Vibe site.

Configuration

Description

Single Server

By default, the Vibe Installation program installs all Vibe components on the same server.

Database Server

For better performance and scalability, you can install the Vibe database on a remote server.

Lucene Index Server

For better performance and scalability, you can install the Lucene index on a remote server.

Multiple Vibe Servers

By running Micro Focus Vibe on multiple servers, you can achieve high availability, including failover and load balancing, depending on how you configure your servers.

Multiple Lucene Servers

Your Micro Focus Vibe site depends on the Lucene Index Server for full functionality. Running multiple Lucene Index Servers provides high availability, so that if one Lucene Index Server goes down, Vibe users can still access the Vibe site because other Lucene Index Servers are still available.

Multiple Database Servers

Each of the three databases supported by Vibe has its own approach to clustering the database server. Information about clustering database servers is available on the Internet.

For more information about which configuration type will best achieve the needs of your organization, see Section A.0, Sizing and Performance Considerations.

For more information about how to set up these configurations, see Section V, Multi-Server Configurations and Clustering.
