SwimOS has a lot of impressive features built into it’s core. One of these features is external addressability. Each of the stateful entities that is defined in your application can be accessed by a unique URI. The challenge becomes finding which location is currently hosting the data for the WebAgent you are requesting. In most systems this would require a lookup to an external system. Each instance of your SwimOS application has the context of the cluster and is aware of where each WebAgent is hosted. This greatly simplifies the configuration of the application and the configuration of the supporting infrastructure.
