Important Network Topology Considerations

The Infor ION Grid is a highly distributed application server where application nodes can run on many different hosts. Every node is able and will initiate communication to all Host Routers within the same grid to register itself on startup, communicate during runtime, and de-register itself on shutdown.

Due to this design, low network latency and high bandwidth are essential for proper grid operation, and so the following guidelines must be adhered to in order to avoid problems:
