Lyftron components

Lyftron installs the following components:

  • Lyftron Server
  • Apache Spark
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
  • Built-in data providers

Lyftron Server

Lyftron Server is a Windows service that requires Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5.2 or later to run.

Java Runtime Environment (JRE)

JRE is required for Apache Spark to run. If no comaptible JRE is detected during Lyftron Server installer, Lyftron built-in JRE (Zulu) will be used.

Apache Spark

Apache Spark is an open-source engine for large-scale data processing. It is built-in and Lyftron Server partially depends on it.

Apache Spark requires JRE to run. If a compatible JRE is not present, a built-in JRE (Zulu) will be used.

Built-in data providers

Over 100 data providers are built-in and installed by Lyftron.

Some of the providers (for example SAP Hana) require separate installation of client software. For a complete list of providers and their requirements please navigate to providers.
