Tanium Core Platform Servers Overview
This guide describes requirements and procedures for installing the following Tanium™ Core Platform servers on customer-provided Windows infrastructure.
For the requirements and procedures to deploy the Tanium™ Appliance in the role of a Tanium Core Platform server, see the Tanium Appliance Installation Guide. To deploy servers in a cloud environment, see Tanium IaaS Cloud Solution Deployment Guide for Amazon Web Services or Tanium IaaS Cloud Solution Deployment Guide for Microsoft Azure.
- Tanium™ Server
The server that communicates with Tanium™ Clients. The Tanium Server runs the Tanium™ Console and API services and communicates with all other platform and solution components, as well as the content.tanium.com servers that host Tanium content packs and Tanium solution import packages.
- Tanium™ Module Server
A server to run application services and store files for Tanium solution modules. In production deployments, you install the Module Server on a dedicated host (not shared with the Tanium Server) to prevent intentional or accidental scripts from having a direct impact on the Tanium Server.
- Tanium™ Zone Server
A server typically deployed in an enterprise DMZ network to proxy traffic between Tanium Clients that reside on limited-access networks and a Tanium Server that resides on the trusted core network.
In an enterprise production deployment, the Tanium Server, Tanium Module Server, and database server must reside on separate hosts, as illustrated in the following figure. In a limited proof-of-concept (POC) deployment, these three servers reside on the same host. However, the POC architecture is intended for demonstration purposes only and does not support enterprise deployments. As a best practice, use the production environment architecture for the enterprise lab environment that you use to qualify software upgrades and test content solutions.
