Chapter 3. Clustered topology choices 39
following deployment environment patterns are available in an IBM Business
Process Manager Standard or Advanced:
Single Cluster
Remote Messaging
Remote Messaging and Remote Support
Remote Messaging, Support, and Web
The following deployment environment patterns are available for creating IBM
Business Process Manager plus IBM Business Monitor topologies:
Single Cluster
Remote Messaging, Support, and Web
Your choice of topology ultimately depends on your individual business
requirements. It is possible that your business requirements, along with a
detailed understanding of the products, will lead to a topology that is slightly
different from those created via the Deployment Environments wizard. In this
case, it is possible to piece together an optimized cluster configuration. Of the
topologies described in the following sections, the Five Cluster topology falls into
this category, as the Deployment Environment wizard can be utilized to create a
Remote Messaging, Support, and Web topology, and then you can manually
create the fifth cluster and configure for monitor.
3.2 Single Cluster topology
A Single Cluster topology is available for the following environments:
IBM Business Process Management Standard
IBM Business Process Management Advanced
IBM Business Process Management Standard or Advanced plus IBM
Business Monitor environment
It can be easily created via the Deployment Environment wizard.
Topology selection: As you plan for your production environment, carefully
consider the advantages and disadvantages of each of these common
topology patterns.

Admin Console, and Process Portal) or Process Server server (including the
Process Admin Console and Process Portal)
Performance Data Warehouse
Business Process Choreographer (for BPEL)
Business Process Choreographer Explorer (for BPEL)
Business Space

To this cluster, you will also deploy the process applications that you create via
IBM Process Designer and IBM Integration Designer. The WebSphere
Integrated Solution Console runs in the Deployment Manager. This cell also
utilizes many sets of database tables:
The Common database tables
Process Server tables
PDW tables
Six sets of messaging engine tables
BPEDB tables
Tables for the BPC Reporting function
Tables for Business Space
Note: The following information applies to the Single Cluster topology for IBM
Business Process Manager Standard:
The lone cluster hosts:
Two messaging engines (one for Process Server, one for PDW)
Process Center server (including the Process Center Console, Process
Admin Console, and Process Portal) or Process Server server
(including the Process Admin Console and Process Portal)
Performance Data Warehouse
