Best Practice Configurations

Once you have decided to use PoolParty, it is time to find the configuration that best suits your needs. A key to this is the so-called multi-tiering, which is the use of PoolParty licenses on a distributed infrastructure.

Along your data lifecycle, several activities take place in parallel and are highly interdependent: Development, testing, staging and production – to name a few. These activities impact the performance, risk, security, and availability of your taxonomy or knowledge graph itself or its associated applications. Managing these dependencies is a key factor in smooth operations, cost efficiencies, and reduced operational risk.

Operating PoolParty in a multi-tier enviromentĀ  helps to minimize operational issues and achieve maximum earned value with PoolParty deployment. The decoupled software instances lets you decouple risks, prevent stand-stills and increases data security. For example, separating the development and test environments can increase the validity of test runs, as it can also help to layout the test environment closer to the realities of the production environment.
