The Linux Control Server For Data Centers is the central controller in a deployment of Backup for Data Centers. The Control Server houses the database of Hosts and their Backup jobs. It also controls each Node (CDP Servers and Web Servers) in the Cluster, and batches out Backup jobs to available CDP Servers. So, administration of the entire system is done through a single web interface of Control Server. A single web interface is used to manage Backups and Restores for all servers in your data center. The location of the server, and the CDP Server that processes Backups, is completely invisible.
There may only be one (1) Control Server for each installation of Backup for Data Centers.
