Understand the i4FS architecture
Based on off-the-shelf, industry-standard containerisation technology, Docker, the i4 Platform provides a homogenous environment for i4 Components to run in: i4 Components and i4 Apps. The platform provides various services for the deployment, configuration, execution, and debugging of i4 Apps and other components.
Clear and uniform execution environment
Based on off-the-shelf, industry-standard containerisation technology of Docker, the i4 Platform provides a uniform execution environment for i4 Components. This environment is controlled by the developers through meta-information attached to the Components.
Central access portal
Single Sign-On, overarching security model
Integrated into the platform is a security model, which controls the inter-asset communication. From the viewpoint of the enduser, the system provides a single sign-on, integrated into the portal, after which they can access each i4 Components in a secure and cooperative manner.
Uniform handling of on-premises vs cloud
Through the uniform execution environment, the i4 Components can run equally on premises as on a cloud service. Through a proxy model, access from on-premise assets to cloud assets is provided, in a secure and effective fashion.
