Configuring a Cascading Server

If you have multiple clients that access a single data source, you can reduce network traffic and improve performance by setting up cascading Enterprise Server servers. A cascading server configuration is best suited for data sources that are accessed by multiple clients that are either located in different regions or that have different data requirements.

To set up a cascading server, you'll need one centrally-located copy of Enterprise Server installed on a network. An additional copy of Enterprise Server is then installed to a computer in each region. These installations must networked to the centrally-located copy of Enterprise Server.

The centrally-located copy collects data from DBServer on the host and distributes it to the networked, regional copies of Enterprise Server. Each regional installation of Enterprise Server caches the data to fulfill the unique requirements for that region.
