Big Data Platform
The CLIENTS block includes one or more Talend Studio APIs and Web browsers that could be on the same or on different machines.
From the Talend Studio API, end-users can carry out technical processes and data profiling analyses and reports regardless of data volume and process complexity.
Talend Studio allows users to work on any project for which they has authorization. For more information, see the Talend Studio User Guide.
From a Web browser, end-users connect to the remotely based Talend Administration Center through a secured HTTP protocol. The end-user category in this description may include developers, project managers, administrators, and any other person involved in building data flows.
Each of these end-users will use either Talend Studio or Talend Administration Center or both of them depending on the company policy.
Additionally, from the Web Browser you access the Talend Data Preparation Web application. This is where you import your data, from local files or other sources, and cleanse or enrich it by creating new preparations on this data. You can also access the Talend Data Stewardship Web application. This is where campaign owners and data stewards manage campaigns and tasks. You can optionally access the Talend Dictionary Service server to add, remove, or edit the semantic types used on data in the Web applications.
The TALEND SERVERS and DATABASES blocks and the Git gray circle include a web-based Talend Administration Center (application server) connected to two shared repositories: one based on a Git server and one based on a database server (Admin).
Talend Administration Center enables the management and administration of all projects. Administration metadata (user accounts, access rights and project authorization for example) is stored in the database server and project metadata (Jobs, Routines for example) is stored in the Git server (to easily share them between the different end-users).
Talend Administration Center also enables to configure the tasks that handle Job executions and triggers. It also looks after the Job generation and deployment to the execution servers. For more information, see the Talend Administration Center User Guide.
Talend Administration Center also includes the servers used by the Talend Web applications, namely Talend Data Preparation and Talend Data Stewardship, and also Talend Dictionary Service. The Talend Identity and Access Management server is used to enable Single Sign-On between those applications.
