Informatica Architecture (GRID Architecture)

  • Node :  It’s a logical representation of machine in a domain
  • Domain : Centralized unit for Informatica services ,Collection of nodes.
  • Integration Service :  Is a service responsible for running and scheduling of Jobs.Which makes Jobs to run ,fetches the data from source and loads in to target systems.
  • Repository Service : Is a service responsible for storing and retrieving of meta-data from the repository database.
  • Domain and Repository Databases : Both are the databases holds the meta-data objects.

  1. Hi Shivakumar,

    By chance do you have an Informatica implementation guide on Grid. I am planning to implement Informatica on IBM Platform Symphony Grid cluster. I'll keep you updated on the implementation progress...

    Here you can get the Product Availability Matrix.
    IBM Symphony Platform Don't supports the Informatica please go through the above availability matrix and select the best Operating System suits for informatica.Once you are selected with OS We can help you out for the GRID implementation.

    Many Thanks


  3. Hi Shivakumar,
    I need some help with Enterprise GRID implementation of Informatica. I would like to get some help from you to see your thoughts. Can you help.

    Dear Kumaran

    Please reach me
    We can deliberate.

    Many Thanks


  5. Thanks Shivakumar,
    The Informatica license is so expensive, we decided to deploy on physical box. We bought licenses for only 8 cores, the Grid has 3000+ cores.

  6. Hi Shiva,
