Concepts in ExtremeCloud IQ
We will explain some important concepts in our ExtremeCloud IQ platform. They are extensively used in business models and REST APIs.
ExtremeCloud IQ. The account created by the customer in our platform.
Virtual ExtremeCloud IQ. The VIQ data are stored at Regional Data Center (RDC). Ideally one XIQ account can have multiple VIQs, but currently we only allow one VIQ per XIQ.
Hierarchical ExtremeCloud IQ, a special XIQ account type allows the customers offers managed service using our platform to their own customers. In this mode, each VIQ can be further partitioned to multiple organizations (ORG).
HIQ organization, a logical unit in VIQ. An ORG in HIQ is similar to a VIQ in normal XIQ account.
Global Data Center. Store those data for customer's accounts information and users information. We have multiple GDCs to store customer information in different countries to obey their laws and regulations.
Regional Data Center. Store those data for customer networks, such as devices, configurations, metrics, etc.
