Dimensions CM architecture

Dimensions CM configuration consists of the following layers.

The components in each tier can be installed on a single machine or scaled horizontally across multiple machines.

A Dimensions CM repository is the full set of stored requests and files (or items) and includes:

  • A database that stores requests and metadata.

  • An item library that stores items for one or more item types in the database. The item library directory can be located on a different network node from the database.

The following diagram illustrates the Dimensions CM architecture:
