About Servers, Server Groups, and Clusters

Using Runtime Manager, you can register and set up the properties of servers, server groups, and clusters that reside on-premises. After setting up a server, you can select it as the deployment target for your applications.

Server Groups and Clusters

Both server groups and clusters run applications in multiple distributed nodes. When using a server group, instances of the applications are completely isolated from each other. In a cluster configuration, the nodes are aware one another and share common information and synchronize statuses.


You can set up email alerts that are sent whenever certain events occur to your servers, such as a server being disconnected, or a server being removed from a cluster. These alerts may be linked to a specific server or to all of them. See Alerts for instructions on how to do this.
