edge node and nifi

New Contributor


I understand that for edge node architecture, the best practices is to have edge node in the DMZ zone.

1- But what if the majority of the clients will be inside the corporation and so the developers or data science may want to connect to edge node. In this case, do we still need to have edge node in a separate network other than the rest of Hortonworks infrastructure (HDF and HDP) ??

2- If we would like to use Nifi for data ingestion for any sensor data, how it can fix with edge node? Does it mean that all the IoT sensors needs to route to edge node and then Nifi? and if the sensor data is coming from out of the organization, then how nifi and edge node should be set?
