MultiSite Manager Implementation

How MultiSite Manager works

All of the computers that are managed by MultiSite Manager are grouped into sites. One computer in each site is made a Site Controller, which connects to the MultiSite Manager and communicates on behalf of its site. All other BackupAssist computers in the site are added to the Site Controller.

How MultiSite Manager is implemented

MultiSite Manager can be used for both single-site and multi-site implementations.

  • Single-site: each BackupAssist computer is connected to a single Site Controller, and that Site Controller is connected to the MultiSite Manager.
  • Multiple Sites: each BackupAssist computer is connected to the Site Controller for their site. The Site Controllers are all connected to the MultiSite Manager.
