The present section lists all the elements required for using the Talend products. To ease their management, we recommend that you centralize all the server modules on one single system.


All Talend applications to be installed must be the same version.

  • An application server (Apache Tomcat server) that hosts Talend Administration Center.

  • A database server storing the administration metadata of Talend Administration Center (by default, an embedded H2 database is used).

  • A database server storing data quality reports and analyses managed by Talend Data Quality Portal.

  • A database server storing golden or master data records managed by Talend Data Stewardship Console (if your license includes the Data Stewardship option).

  • A version control system for Project metadata.

  • A Web browser to access Web application:

    • Talend Administration Center where projects, users and processes can be managed and administrated. For more information, see the Talend Administration Center User Guide.

    • Data Quality Portal that extends the dynamic reporting and monitoring capabilities of Talend Studio. For more information, see the Talend Data Quality Portal User and Administrator Guide.

  • A Nexus artifact repository in which are stored software updates, external libraries and artifacts.

  • Execution servers (JobServers) or Talend Runtime execution containers (based on Apache Karaf) to deploy and execute processes.

  • A Studio API to carry out technical processes. For more information, see the Talend Studio User Guide.

  • A Talend Activity Monitoring Console, providing detailed monitoring capabilities that can be used to consolidate the collected log information. For more information, see the Talend Activity Monitoring Console User Guide.
