The Remote Execution of SSIS Packages feature improves performance when Discovery Hub is installed using a separate application server and database server configuration.
When using this configuration, the default ADO.net transfer will move data from a source and through the application server to land in the target SQL database. Even on a high-speed LAN, this is considerably slower than having Discovery Hub and SQL Server on the same machine.
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 Discovery Hub 17.12.13 and forward
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.
