Click on either Dell Security Management Server or Dell Security Management Server Virtual for specific backup requirements.
Dell Data Security management servers do not support an active/active method of redundancy. It is highly recommended to only have a single back-end server and adhere to the recommended Disaster Recovery planning. Due to the nature of how keys are stored on local endpoints, always-up availability is not required.
For organizations that require redundancy, Dell Data Security management servers supports in-place hot/cold servers.
Dell Security Management Server SQL Clustering
Organizations using Dell Security Management Server can choose to utilize a SQL cluster. In this configuration, the Dell Security Management Server should be configured to use the SQL cluster IP or hostname.
Endpoint traffic can be distributed between front-end servers and the back-end server. Optionally, multiple front-end servers can also be placed in the DMZ for activating endpoints and/or publishing policies to endpoints over the internet.
Figure 1 is an example of an extremely large environment that may be leveraging all technologies mentioned above.
