A Snaplex (the data plane) is the data processing engine of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform. Customers can deploy one or many Snaplexes as required to run pipelines and process data. A Snaplex consists of one or more Nodes and can be one of the following:
Cloudplex: All Cloudplexes run inside the SnapLogic Integration Cloud. Customers use the Manager and the Monitoring Dashboard to administer their Cloudplex. The SnapLogic DevOps team administers the infrastructure key performance indicators (KPIs). Customers needing to run integrations that orchestrate across cloud applications (such as Salesforce, ServiceNow, Workday) with no on-premises connections will not require any software to run behind their firewall.
Groundplex: Customers needing on-premises connectivity (such as SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics AX) will need a Groundplex, which runs behind the firewall. Although they run on private or virtual private data centers, Groundplexes are managed remotely by the SnapLogic Elastic Integration control plane.
A Hadooplex is a specific type of Groundplex for use in a Hadoop environment. See Creating a Hadooplex for more information.
Selecting a Snaplex for a Pipeline Run
You can configure which Snaplex a pipeline will use in the following ways:
With a pipeline open in Designer, you can select which Snaplex the pipeline is to run on from the Snaplex drop-down menu.
When you configure a scheduled or triggered task, you can select the Snaplex on which to run the pipeline.
The Pipeline Execute and ForEach Snaps have a Snaplex property that specifies where the child pipeline will be executed. In the case of Pipeline Execute, if the property is left blank, the child pipeline will be executed on the same node as the parent.
To set a dedicated Snaplex for a project, an org admin can move a Snaplex from the Shared project to any other project. Only those pipelines within the new project will have access to that Snaplex.
