Using the Pulse, users can connect data sources on the disparate network directly to Pyramid, allowing direct queries from Pyramid to the data sources.
The Pulse Server is a stand alone application designed to be deployed into disparate networks, separate from the main Pyramid deployment.
NOTE: The Pulse server itself does not need a license. However Pulse capabilities are only available with Enterprise Licensing.
The Pulse installer can be downloaded from the Pyramid customer portal. Pulse is a quick installation and requires a simple setup process. Details can be found here.
Note: Pulse does not support OLAP or Tabular models.
Note: Before you begin, ensure you have administrative rights on the server.
Pulse connects to Pyramid via standard web channels on ports 80 (unsecured) or 443 (secured via SSL) - depending on what protocol your Pyramid installation is configured to run under.
- Pulse does not require any other network changes, firewall rule updates, VPN setups or alternative security apparatus. It will also operate smoothly with modern proxy servers.
- In the event there are issues connecting a Pulse Server node to Pyramid, please check your proxy server configurations. This is usually manifest in older, 'transparent' proxy servers and configurations.
