The Big Picture

Deployment infrastructure

A typical deployment of Fogbow will require two dedicated machines (either real or virtual). Let us call them internal.mydomain and external.mydomain. The internal.mydomain machine is part of the organization's private network and must have access to the endpoints of the cloud that is being federated. On the other hand, the external.mydomain machine should be outside the organization's private network, within a DMZ.

The Messaging Service (MS) is deployed in external.mydomain, while the Resource Allocation Service (RAS) is deployed in internal.mydomain. Usually, the latter is also the machine where all other optional Fogbow services are deployed. in the site will usually be deployed in and FM components are deployed in the internal.mydomain machine, while the XMPP server and the FRT component are deployed in the external.mydomain machine.
