Background

To simplify centralized management and reduce latency, Control Manager 7.0 is moving away from cascading management in which a single Control Manager parent server controls multiple Control Manager child servers.

New deployments should plan for a single Control Manager architecture. New features and functions will not be available for cascaded deployments in the future.

Based on the production experience of Control Manager customers, cascading management does not alleviate capacity limitations. Instead, cascading management only moves the problem from the child servers to the parent server through increased network complexity and latency.

Full-fledged role-based access control on a single Control Manager server also allows administrators to assign clear roles and responsibilities for teams in highly distributed organizations for easier collaboration and coordination.

The new structure offers a single pane of glass on a single Control Manager server.

We believe this is the right direction for our customers and greatly improves centralized management.
