The Relay Server reverse proxy

The Relay Server is a reverse proxy that enables secure, load-balanced communication between mobile devices and backend servers through a web server. Supported backend servers include MobiLink, SAP Mobile Server, SAP Afaria, and SAP Mobile Office.

The Relay Server provides the following:

  • A common communication architecture for mobile devices communicating with backend servers.
  • A mechanism to enable a load-balanced and fault-tolerant environment for backend servers.
  • A way to help communication between mobile devices and back-end servers in a way that integrates easily with existing corporate firewall configurations and policies.
