Secure Agents

The Informatica Cloud Secure Agent is a lightweight program that runs all tasks and enables secure communication across the firewall between your organization and
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
. When the Secure Agent runs a task, it connects to the Informatica Cloud hosting facility to access task information. It connects directly and securely to sources and targets, transfers data between them, orchestrates the flow of tasks, runs processes, and performs any additional task requirement.
If the Secure Agent loses connectivity to
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
, it tries to reestablish connectivity to continue the task. If it cannot reestablish connectivity, the task fails.
The Secure Agent uses pluggable microservices for data processing. For example, the Data Integration Server runs all data integration jobs, and Process Server runs application integration and process orchestration jobs. Each service has a unique set of configuration properties, such as Tomcat and Tomcat JRE settings. For more information about Secure Agent services, see Secure Agent services.
You can install and run one Secure Agent on a physical or virtual machine. After you install a Secure Agent, all users in the organization share the Secure Agent. You can configure the Secure Agent properties and move it to a different Secure Agent group. To improve scalability, you can also add multiple agents to a Secure Agent group.
