Pulse is a stand alone application designed to be deployed into disparate networks, separate from the main Pyramid deployment. It allows connectivity to remote data sources without using a VPN or other network security. Pulse presents data sources to users like any data source and offers tremendous speed and security without the complexities of settings up reverse agents.
- Pulse data sources support both direct querying and data streaming in the Model module.
- Installation instructions for Pulse can be found here.
This feature is available only with an Enterprise edition license.
