The WebService API Server enables BMC Middleware Automation (BMA) version 8.8.01 to support different sets of distributed environments.

Setup topologies and load balancing strategies

The WebService API Server architecture enables you to introduce several topologies:

  • Simple, standalone non-HA: All BMA components are installed on a single computer, which simplifies installation and configuration. This topology is great for one user because it does not provide high availability and performance.

  • Simple, multiuser non-HA: All BMA components are installed on a single computer, which simplifies installation and configuration. This topology allows multiple users to access API Server installed on this computer, but it does not provide high availability and performance, and all users share resources of the first computer.

  • High performance: The WebServices API Servers and databases are installed on different computers, and users have their own desktop applications installed and configured to point to a particular API Server. This topology provides high performance, simple configuration for the end user, and allows API Servers to run in docker containers.

  • High performance and high availability: The WebServices API Servers and databases are installed on different computers, and users have their own desktop applications installed and configured to point to the load balancer. This topology provides high performance and availability, simple configuration for the end user, and allows API Servers to run in docker containers.

  • Multi zone: Allows having multiple zones with separate metricsDB databases. Each zone has a normal cluster setup with load balancer.
