WSO2 API Manager includes five main components as the Publisher, Store, Gateway, Traffic Manager and Key Manager. In a stand-alone APIM setup, these components are deployed in a single server. However, in a typical production setup, they need to be deployed in separate servers for better performance. Installing and configuring each or selected component/s in different servers is called a distributed setup.


Note: It is recommended to separate the worker and manager nodes in scenarios where you have multiple Gateway nodes. See Separating the Worker and Manager Nodes for information on why it is advantageous to separate the worker and manager nodes.
