The feedback from users using version 2 of the Wisdom / SharePoint integration included the fact that wisdom was required on the SharePoint server and SharePoint was required on the wisdom server presented a problem.
Wisdom on the SharePoint server added lots of unneeded components; such as Wisdoms Message queues, its services and the main web app. SharePoint on the Wisdom server creates an overhead for the Wisdom server and is a licencing concern. With version 3 you can chose to have ‘it all on one box’ or you can have Wisdom and SharePoint on their own servers.
The following diagram shows a typical environment :
To make this possible the Audit and Job Queue services have been refactored so they are not needed on the Wisdom SharePoint server. We have also made significant changes to the way the configuration works. You now have a configuration server and other servers requiring the wisdom API can load the configuration from the central server.
