Introduction to Snaplogic Training:
SnapLogic is a data integration platform with an innovative, extensible data flow architecture and straight forward subscription model which has the most comprehensive connectivity capabilities for application integration in the market today. SnapLogic connects almost any SaaS, Cloud, Web, or enterprise application or data source through components and pipelines, providing information as a utility to business users and applications. The whole objective behind this technology is that, it is most hybrid as well as elastic because it is the combination of applications, cloud and on premise. Ides Trainings helps you to gain expertise in the integration cloud, connectors that are built in, and data processing concepts. Ides Trainings has the industry experts, who will help you to gain knowledge in SnapLogic with their interactive training sessions.

Overview of Snaplogic Training:
Almost every application needs integration with different database or needs which can be used as middleware between database and portable applications. Snaps make code-free integrations possible, dramatically reducing the time needed to connect data sources. By simply dragging and dropping Snaps onto the SnapLogic Designer, integrators with varying skill levels can quickly and easily configure their integration pipelines to connect a variety of endpoints. Snaps are collected into groups called Snap Packs. Each Snap Pack is a collection of Snaps that relates to an endpoint or provides similar functionality. Snaps provide a level of abstraction over an application endpoint so that you don’t have to read its documentation. To make it even easier to work with Snaps, the Integration Assistant, powered by SnapLogic’s Iris AI, recommends which Snaps to start and end with or which Snaps to use next when connecting two or more endpoints.
Integration and Cloud Platform Components of SnapLogic:
Designer: This is the developer area. Here developer will define the integration solution which is HTML5 based web application and completely managed in the cloud.
Manager: This is the administrator’s area. Here snaplogic administrator locks in and manages the pipelines defined. In addition to that, from manager an administrator can provision access to a particular user or groups. This a cloud hosted application and completely managed by SnapLogic Team.
Monitor: It’s a monitoring application which is hosted in the cloud. You can visualize the performance of workflows, monitor Erros, debug and gather information to fix them.
Why SnapLogic is Needed?
- As the number of databases, file servers and browsers that need to be integrated with your applications are growing, with snaplogic we can minimize them.
- SnapLogic plays a role of fundamental tool which can deal with any kind of data/ files.
- For connecting different database or file servers, fetching/updating data in database or files in a single service call needs huge amount of coding, but by using SnapLogic we can do it in a single pipeline.
Architecture of Snaplogic:
SnapLogic consists of primely two areas. Control plane which is completely running in the cloud and the other one is data plane which is the data processing area. Snaplogic is an elastic integration platform consists of an integration cloud, prebuilt connectors called snaps and snaplex for data processing. It has architecture with three simple components which are Platform, Snaplexes, Snaps.
Platform: It is the web interface in which you can access to build jobs, pipelines, end-to-end development. Snaplogic hosts and upgrades platform, this is offered to us as an IPaaS solution that is integrated platform as a service solution. Platform is a cloud-based designer, manager, Dashboard. When we run a pipeline snaplogic server needs to communicate with third-party source systems.
Snaplexes: After creating and executing a pipeline, it has to run on a particular machine which takes place in snaplexes. It is typically a cloud Plex. Based on the place hosted, they are defined. If the machines are hosted on your cloud they are called as cloud plex. If it is hosted inside the same machines i.e., in the on premise within the firewall then that is called as Ground plex. There can be Hybrid plex in which certain nodes are part of cloud and some nodes are part of on-premise.
Snaps: These are the building blocks or these are the units that performs a particular functionality and then a developer will combine snaps to together to form a pipeline. To create a pipeline, we need objects called snaps. To read/write a particular source or object, to perform data transmission we need a particular object or a transmission object which are present within platform itself. Based on requirement, licensing, partnership, with snaplogic the availability of snaps will differ.
Key Terms in Snapalogic :
Snap Packs: Snap Packs will contain a set of snaps to perform multiple actions for a particular component.
Example: snap pack for MongoDB, there will be snaps to connect, read data and write data.
Pipelines: Pipelines are actual integration flows. Pipeline is created by connecting snaps together.
It consists of File reader, JSON Paser, Sort, JSON Formatter, File Writer.
Patterns: Patterns are predefined pipelines to address a certain common integration problem. Reduces development effort and faster development.
Example: Pattern for logging framework, pattern for error handling etc.,
Tasks: It defines how a pipeline actually gets executed. There are different types of tasks.
Triggered- Triggered from an external application by invoking an endpoint.
Scheduled Job- Jobs that are configured to run at predefined intervals like a batch processing job.
Ultra-Tasks: Tasks for low latency requirements. Always runs and ready to process incoming requests.
Nodes: Nodes are the host servers that host Snaplexes.
Snaplogic runs on JVM.
This is a unit of scalability inside a snaplex.
SnaPlex is made up of multiple nodes.
