Architecture of Centreon Cloud

Centreon Cloud consists of the following elements:

  • A central server:

    • The central server is provided to you by Centreon, ready to use.
    • The central server does not monitor resources in your infrastucture (the pollers do).
    • The central server has a user interface, in which you can see resources monitored by all pollers.
    • You can reach the user interface from anywhere with a web browser at <organization>.<region>
    • The central server is hosted in the cloud.
    • Centreon installs and upgrades central servers.
  • One or more pollers:

    • Pollers monitor resources in your infrastructure.
    • Pollers do not have a user interface (you see the pollers' activity on the central server's interface).
    • Pollers are part of your infrastructure, which means better security, latency and bandwidth.
    • You install your pollers using a simple script.
    • A VPN connects your pollers with the central server.
