Explanation of the management server
The management server serves as the foundation of the VMS system. The configuration of the security system is kept in an SQL database, either on the management server computer or on a different SQL Server on the network. Additionally, it manages user authorization, the rule system, and more. You can use a licensed Milestone Federated ArchitectureTM to run several management servers, which will enhance system performance. A dedicated server is typically used to host the management server, which operates as a service.
Users establish a connection with the management server for initial authentication before transparently accessing the recording servers to access video recordings, etc.
