Best-in-class Cloud Architecture

Fredhopper Access Server (FAS) is deployed and delivered in the cloud. The exact cloud configuration, including a designated cloud region and number of live and test environments, depends on customer requirements, contractual agreement, and decisions made during the integration process.

Every Fredhopper Discovery Platform deployment consists of three components

Smart Data Pipeline

The Smart Data Engine, provides our customers with an ability to combine, centralize and enrich multiple separate streams of raw data input, in real-time. This delivers truly actionable insights for automatic application or for informing improved decision-making.

Query Service

Handles all communication between your store and FAS. When a shopper explores your store, the store sends a request to the Query Service. This processes the request and returns results which your store then renders to the shopper’s device.

Merchandising Studio

Provides a user interface for merchandisers to create and apply business rules and configuration changes. These configuration changes influence the navigation and search results returned by the Query Service.
