The LinuFy solution has a very specific organisation methodology to segment and secure the Information System. To represent this, we use a "Sunburst" diagram. This type of chart is drawn in a circular layout where each ring represents a level in the group hierarchy. While the inner ring includes the categories of the higher level, the outer rings represent the sub-categories.
The first level corresponds to the Subscription. This is a technical and billing element that allows the use of LinuFy. Resources cannot communicate from one subscription to another.
The second level corresponds to the Region. One or more regions are used to manage several servers. A region is an agent installed on one of your servers. It allows to make the gateway between the LinuFy API and your infrastructure. Regions are independent and cannot communicate with each other.
The third level corresponds to the Server. Your virtual, physical or cloud servers are accessible in LinuFy via the region.
The last level corresponds to the Managed service. It is a software installed on your servers and managed by LinuFy.
