The i2b2 Hive and associated web services are the infrastructure used to integrate a collection of cells. The i2b2 Hive is comprised of a collection of cells representing unique functional units. The server in which these cells are installed is known as the i2b2 Server.

The cells that make up the i2b2 hive can exist on a single server or on multiple servers. If you have multiple i2b2 servers then each one will need to meet the requirements defined in this section.
