Non-Redundant / Simplex Mode Deployment
In simplex deployment, the application is installed on a single server with no fail-over support of the Connector. However, the same Connector can still communicate with primary and secondary Finesse servers.
Simplex mode is useful for lab tests and commercial deployments at a smaller scale. Figure 1.0 explains the simplex mode of Generic Connector.
High Availability (HA) / Duplex Deployment
In Duplex mode, there are two types of supported configurations.
Active-Passive (Primary / Secondary) Setup
A primary/secondary configuration setup where one Connector works as a primary server while the other (secondary) is available as a standby server (from a Disaster Recovery site)
In this mode, both Connector instances are active and serving clients and one instance serves as the backup / secondary for the other.
