Governance servers host specific integration or governance connectors for technology that does not integrate directly with open metadata.
These are the different types:
- Engine hosts - host governance engines for active management of the open metadata ecosystem.
- Integration daemons - manage the exchange of metadata with third party technologies.
- Data engine proxy - captures information about processes and the data sources that they work with and catalogs them in open metadata.
- Open lineage server - accumulates lineage information to provide a comprehensive historical reporting service for lineage.
