Additional Information for On-premise Deployments

Architectural Changes - Allow deploying RPM (Region Proxy Manager) on a separate machine

Region Proxy Manager (RPM)  introduced in 12.4, can be deployed on a separate machine.

Installing the RPM on a separate machine reduces the effort and load from the Cloud Server machine, it will reduces the CPU, Disk and Network usages and improves cloud stability 

Supported only on Cloud with Single Port Mode. 

We recommended to install RPM on a separate machine in medium/big Cloud:

  • 30-40 parallel grid sessions (Mobile and Browsers)
  • Application file size are bigger than 40MB
  • 30-40 parallels users (UI, Manual For Web, Automation For Web, Eclipse/IntelliJ Plugins)

Please read our docs about Region Proxy and Secured Network Connection (TLS & HTTPS)
