Intuiface's infrastructure requirements are quite flexible. As a result, multiple usage options are available, enabling selection of the one most appropriate for a given set of IT restrictions and preferences. The following four scenarios are examples of possible Intuiface usage models, from the most open model (where all Intuiface cloud-based services are used) through the most closed model (where none are used).
Four Usage Model Options
Use Intuiface Cloud Storage or a private Amazon S3 bucket to store published Intuiface experiences. (Intuiface projects are referred to as “experiences”.) All Intuiface cloud services such as remote experience deployment onto Player as well as Intuiface Analytics are available.
Use an in-house FTP/FTPS server behind a firewall to store published Intuiface experiences, while still taking advantage of all Intuiface cloud services such as remote experience deployment onto Player as well as Intuiface Analytics. Both Composer and Player must have access to the FTP/FTPS server.
No Experience Publishing
Experiences are not published to the Intuiface Cloud, an Amazon S3 bucket, or an FTP/FTPS server. Intuiface experiences are either deployed manually or via in-house automated means. All devices running Composer and Player have at least occasional access to the Internet, so their licenses can be checked and renewed when required. Players can use Intuiface Analytics; locally stored data points are sent to the Analytics server when Player has access to the Internet.
Intuiface experiences are managed using a LAN file system and deployment onto Player is an in-house responsibility. (With Players offline, it is not possible to remotely deploy to them or manage them). Also unusable is Intuiface Analytics and any of the cloud-hosted social media platforms supported by Intuiface. Intuiface’s offline licensing option is also required, involving manual license requests submitted to Intuiface Technical Support. All in all, about 80% of Intuiface capabilities will be accessible.
