Overview of ARGUS Application
Server

Windows
Business
Services

The ARGUS Application Server
or Server Farm
consists principally of the three Window services
described below.
A Windows service is a lo
ng running executable that performs specific functions
and which is designed not to require user intervention. Windows services can be configured to start
when the operating system is booted and to run in the background as long as Windows is running.



App
lication Service
s

Application Services represent
the principal business logic layer for

the ARGUS Enterprise Solution.
R
equests from the
client application are handled by Application Services.


Process Service

The ARGUS Enterprise Process Services operate

as the bulk data management and manipulation
component
of the application. Process Services manages communication
between the business
logic
layer
and the database.


Data Service

(optional)

The Data Service provides
speciali
z
ed
data integration faciliti
es. It is an optional part of ARGUS
Enterprise
8.0

and need only be installed and configured if data integration is required.


The ARGUS
Enterprise
c
ore
b
usiness
s
ervices
may follow various paths for installation. Each of these
paths is detailed in this
document. The appropriate path for your installation will vary based on your
organization’s needs and the scale of your deployment. See
Planning Your Deployment

for more
information on how to select the most appropriate installation path for your deploymen
t of ARGUS
Enterprise.


System Requirements

Before installing the ARGUS Enterprise
c
ore
b
usiness
s
ervices
, the installation of the ARGUS
Enterprise Database Server should be completed and verified.
Please refer to the
ARGUS Enterprise
Server System Requir
ements

to determine the hardware and software requirements that match the
scale of your deployment.


Installed Components

Upon successful completion of the tasks
described in
this document, the following components will
be installed:
