Fusion Architecture: Components

Fusion consists of three main components:

 Gears5   

Fusion Host

The Fusion host performs the data processing and workflow tasks created and managed by Fusion users. Fusion Host is a Java application that is supported for all computing platforms. This platform support is limited only by the availability of a JVM for an operating system and appropriate platform testing to ensure compatibility.

Fusion Database

The Fusion database contains the information that Fusion host uses to perform the workflow and data processing tasks. The Fusion database is supplied by default as an embedded Java database called Hypersonic. For production deployment Fusion Server allows you to specify a different supported database (Oracle, SQL Server, My SQL, etc.) and will create itself in that database.

Fusion Console

The Fusion console is a Java Swing application that allows users to create and maintain the information that Fusion host uses to perform the workflow and data processing tasks.
