Designing your data model

Distribute your data in a data model that fits the needs of your organization and customers.

There are a number of things to consider when designing your data model:
  • The structure of your topic tree
  • The types of topic to use
  • The format of your data
  • How you publish data to topics
  • Your conflation strategy
  • Whether you also use messaging to send data.

These considerations are not separate. The decisions you make about one aspect of your data model affect other aspects.

The data model is defined on the Diffusion™ server by your publishers or clients. The topic structure, topic types, and data format only persist on the Diffusion server through a restart or upgrade if the topic persistence feature is enabled.

Design your solution to create your data model on the Diffusion server afresh after the Diffusion server is restarted or upgraded.
