Deploying commit and edge servers incrementally

You can deploy commit and edge servers incrementally. For example, an existing master server can be reconfigured to act as a commit server, and serve in hybrid mode. The commit server continues to service all existing users, workspaces, proxies, and replicas with no change in behavior. The only immediate difference is that the commit server can now support edge servers.

Once a commit server is available, you can proceed to configure one or more edge servers. Deploying a single edge server for a pilot team is a good way to become familiar with edge server behavior and configuration.

Additional edge servers can be deployed periodically, giving you time to adjust any affected processes and educate users about any changes to their workflow.

Initially, running a commit server and edge server on the same machine can help achieve a full split of operations, which can make subsequent edge server deployments easier.
