Fortanix DSM SaaS Architecture

Fortanix DSM SaaS is built on a web-scale architecture that’s designed to deliver high resiliency and availability for modern cloud environments.


The platform uses multiple clusters with a distributed architecture. For each region (Americas, EU, UK. etc.) there are 3 physically isolated data centers clusters to improve availability and reduce latency within the Geo. Security Objects are replicated automatically across the data centers within a geo to eliminate a single point of failure and an intelligent load-balancing service automatically accesses the nearest key management service.

  • Each cluster is independent and made up of a large number of hardware nodes. 
  • The cluster spans across data centers over redundant interconnects for high availability, minimal latency.
  • Security Objects are replicated automatically to eliminate a single point of failure. 
  • Intelligent load-balancing automatically accesses the nearest cluster to the customer in delivering the fastest service.

Fortanix DSM SaaS runs on Platform Equinix, which allows enterprises to seamlessly and  securely integrate with clouds and other digital business services by leveraging Equinix Fabric for private and dedicated interconnects into customer VPC’s
