High Availability Architecture

High availability architecture is an approach of defining the components, modules or implementation of services of a system that ensures optimal operational performance, better load balance and easier versioning for upgrades. CxSAST supports high availability architecture, where two or more CxManager servers (in active-active mode) are installed and can access the same database. This ensures that in cases where one CxManager fails the system will continue to be operational.

The main objective of implementing High Availability is to make sure CxSAST is always available for the systems users and clients. The ActiveMQ can be configured as an individual server, or as part of a cluster (node). 

Please note that all CxManagers must be co-located in same data center. If you are interested in configuring a High Availability solution please contact Checkmarx support

CxSAST also supports following architecture types:

Communication between the CxClient and CxManager as well as communication between the CxManager and the CxEngine are via HTTP (by default). HTTPS can also be configured.

Starting with CxSAST v9.4.0, M&O is no longer available for new installation. For previous information about M&O, please refer to Management and Orchestration.
