What are the key differences among st the above three types
Atoms, Molecules,and Atom Clouds has a lot of information about the differences between atoms, molecules, clouds and on-premise vs in-the-cloud deployment models.
Thanks for posting the link. Could you advice is there any difference in offered functionality/features between Atom Cloud and self managed deployments?
i.e. custom scripting, access to local drive, etc.
Thanks Jeff, can anyone elucidate in short on the difference between local atom, atom cloud and atom cluster specifically?
A local atom is stored on one user system and is dependent on nothing but itself. It is limited to one platform account and can be scaled on a hardware level, but you cannot add JVMs.
Atom Cluster(I think this refers to a molecule?) is a high availability resource that is limited to a single platform account. You would use this typically for listeners and parallel processing. They are scalable in the sense you can add JVM nodes on the fly.
Atom Cloud is a high availability resource that can be utilized on multiple platform accounts. Typically partners and customers with multiple platform accounts utilize these to have a uniform atom available for all. These atoms are also scalable.
