What is the functional architecture of Sentinel?


Sentinel 5 is composed of three component subsystems, which form the core of the functional architecture:

iSCALE Platform – an event-driven scalable framework
Data Source Integration – an extensible collector framework
Application Integration – an extensible application framework

Sentinel treats both "services" and "applications" as abstract service endpoints that can readily respond to asynchronous events. Services are "objects" that do not need to understand protocols or how messages get routed to the peer services.
