frends has more features than any other integration software out there. Explore, ideate, and if anything is unclear - hit us up at any time. This library is bound to grow over time.

Hybrid Deployments

A common practice is to combine both cloud and ground deployments together to create a hybrid environment, where both cloud and ground agents can communicate with one another seamlessly.

FRENDS Distributed Architecture

This approach enables customers to choose which portions of which integrations are executed in which Agent.

Example Use Cases

Exposing Ground Data as an API

One common use case for hybrid deployments is to use a ground Agent to connect to systems and data sources in the ground environment and expose their contents as an API in a cloud environment.

The main benefit in this approach is a secure one-way connectivity from the cloud to ground and also have fine-grained control on what data is actually sent to the cloud. You could for example scrub the data of sensitive information before sending it to the cloud to be published.

Integrating Cloud and Ground Systems

Another common use case is to execute an integration in the cloud environment, which requires data or functionality from an on-premise system. So, rather than opening firewalls to allow for the connection from cloud towards the ground you can simply have two frends Agents in place that are connected in a hybrid configuration.

This drastically reduces complexity in your network configuration and offers one central secure pathway between cloud and ground through the frends platform.
