Components

EIS Cloud Relay Service

The EIS Cloud Relay service is a highly scalable AS2 server platform that performs the tasks of message encryption, signing, data verification, logging, and exception handling.
The service is controller from the EIS dashboard, which can be used to add new AS2 partners, as well as monitor message flows.
Every client has their own dedicated AS2 server(s), hosted in the EIS Kubernetes environment. Messages sent and received by the service are not kept on the AS2 servers for security.

Azure Storage account

Message received from AS2 partners are immediately stored in the Azure storage account. They will queue here until they are downloaded by the on-premise windows service.
Outbound messages are uploaded here before being sent to the appropriate AS2 partner.

EIS Cloud Relay Client

The Cloud Relay client is a windows service that performs 2 functions:
– Monitoring local (or network) folders for files to be sent to an AS2 partner (and thus uploaded into Azure storage).
– Pulling AS2 messages from an Azure storage container, and saving them in a local directory
The Client should be installed on multiple machines, and setup in a standard windows cluster for high availability
