Data Integration Service Grid Overview

Data Integration Service Grid Overview

If your license includes grid, you can configure the Data Integration Service to run on a grid. A grid is an alias assigned to a group of nodes. When you run jobs on a Data Integration Service grid, you improve scalability and performance by distributing jobs to processes running on multiple nodes in the grid.
To configure a Data Integration Service to run on a grid, you create a grid object and assign nodes to the grid. Then, you assign the Data Integration Service to run on the grid.
When you enable a Data Integration Service assigned to a grid, a Data Integration Service process runs on each node in the grid that has the service role. If a service process shuts down unexpectedly, the Data Integration Service remains available as long as another service process runs on another node. Jobs can run on each node in the grid that has the compute role. The Data Integration Service balances the workload among the nodes based on the type of job and based on how the grid is configured.
When the Data Integration Service runs on a grid, the service and compute components of the Data Integration Service can run on the same node or on different nodes, based on how you configure the grid and the node roles. Nodes in a Data Integration Service grid can have a combination of the service only role, the compute only role, and both the service and compute roles.
