eG Enterprise Deployment Models
eG Enterprise deployment is hassle-free and does not require extensive policy and firewall reconfigurations to collect and communicate metrics. Since it uses standard web protocols (HTTP/HTTPS) for all communications, eG Enterprise allows monitoring of servers that are deployed within a private network or in the public cloud.
As long as the agent has connectivity to the management system using HTTP/HTTPS, the monitoring can be started immediately. No additional firewall rules need to be configured.
eG allows you to deploy eG Enterprise according to your requirements. The following illustrations show you the different deployment scenarios of eG Enterprise:
ON-PREMISES DEPLOYMENT OF eG ENTERPRISE
eG Enterprise follows the manager-agent architecture that has been widely used for designing monitoring systems. While the eG manager is a software component that controls what elements are monitored and how frequently they are monitored and the eG agents are software components that perform the monitoring functions.
CLOUD DEPLOYMENT OF eG ENTERPRISE
eG Enterprise allows you to deploy the eG manager on the cloud. The eG agents installed on your environment will report the eG manager on the cloud.
HYBRID IT DEPLOYMENT OF eG ENTERPRISE (ON-PREMISES + CLOUD)
IT administrators can choose the Hybrid IT Deployment of eG Enterprise when they need to monitor their on-premises and cloud setup simultaneously. In this case, the eG agents installed in the on-premises and/or cloud infrastructures report the monitored data to the eG manager deployed on the on-premises and/or cloud infrastructures. This model mitigates the difficulties in monitoring the on-premises and cloud setup without the need of complex set up.
MSP DEPLOYMENT OF eG ENTERPRISE
The figure shows the MSP-friendly architecture of eG Enterprise. eG Enterprise is completely scalable, and future-proofed for any size and any type of IT environments. Service providers can choose an on-premises deployment or a subscription-based monitoring-as-a-service (MaaS) model to monitor remote customer deployments.
Before installing the eG Enterprise, you need to consider the factors discussed in the Where to locate the eG Manager?topic to decide the exact location where the eG manager should be installed in your environment.
