The Alumio integration platform provides Task-based pricing plans, which provide higher Task capacities with each plan. However, Alumio also provides Data Engines with each plan to improve how Tasks are processed. These Data Engines are essentially powerhouse for managing individual tasks, ensuring smooth and orderly data management through our advanced queue system.

Redefining data processing efficiency, Alumio ‘Data Engines’ operate behind the scenes, processing Tasks like handling data, managing incoming and outgoing requests, and executing background operations such as sending notifications. They allow integrated systems to manage an increased data load by handling multiple Tasks in parallel. This is crucial for businesses looking to grow their integrations and increase their process automation. By handling operations in the background, Data Engines ensure that the main functionalities of an application are not bogged down by resource-intensive Tasks.

Alumio provides a higher number of Data Engines with each pricing plan, with the Starter Edition providing just 1 Data Engine and the Custom Edition starting with 6 Data Engines. Users can also purchase additional Alumio Data Engines as add-on to further enhance the task processing capabilities of their integrations. Besides that, an add-on can be purchased to increase the default memory limit of 384MB per Data Engine to a higher level.

Where can I find information about Data Engines and Queues?

How does the Data Engine queue function work?

Within Alumio you are not able to assign Queues of Data Engines to the specific configurations. They are set automatically in the environment.

Pay attention, if you don’t run any processes, that means, Data Engines won’t perform actions and nothing will happen.
