The Remote Execution of SSIS Packages feature improves performance when Discovery Hub is installed separately from the SQL Server that houses the data warehouse.
When this is the case, all traffic from source systems to the staging databases and data warehouses has to pass through the Discovery Hub machine where Discovery Hub opens and executes the SSIS packages it has generated. Even on a high-speed LAN, this is considerably slower than having Discovery Hub and the data warehouse on the same server.
As the name suggests Remote Execution of SSIS Packages lets you execute SSIS packages on a remote server, typically the server that houses the actual data warehouse, saving the data an extra trip through the network cables.
Compatibility and Prerequisites
Remote Execution of SSIS Packages is supported by the following TimeXtender DWA platforms: Discovery Hub, TX DWA, TX2014 SP2, TX2014 SP1.
SSIS must be installed on both the local and remote servers. The SSIS version on the local server and the SSIS version on the remote server must be the same version for the Remote Execution service to work.
Please see the user guide for the feature for installation instructions.
