Infor LN: components and architecture

Hi everyone,

I am an infrastructure guy but now facing a project where Infor is to be implemented and people are throwing product names and functions at me which I cannot process.
The customer is just implementing this, so his knowledge is a bit guesswork and I do not have direct contact to the Infor consultants.

What I am looking for is:
1) A short description what the system does
2) A dependency to the other systems (if possible, this would be great)

Google flooded me with nice marketing slides and so on, but I am looking for some basic overview and architecture.

I have a list of these systems:
  • Infor LN - Application
  • Infor LN UI
  • Infor PLM
  • Infor Factory Track
  • Infor Xi-Application
  • Infor Shared fileserver content
  • Infor LN-Database
  • Infor LN-Xi-Database

The LN DB/APP/UI would be the core service, right?
Classic three tier application with a dependency map like this:
<USER via web> ----LN UI ---- LN APP ---- LN DB

Now, do PLM, Factory Track etc. access the DB or the App?
Xi seems to be some sort of CRM(?), it has its own DB but will it access the LN DB?

Update:
And somehow I am totally thrown off by things like: ION, Meng.LE and their connection, where they are used etc.
In the HA guide documents I have seen that you can put the LN UI behind a load balancer for performance and failover reasons.
Did I get that right, would that take care my app/UI layer availability or are there any drawbacks?

Thank you so much in advance!
