Architecture: Remote BlackBerry MDS Integration Service

You can install the BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server however, the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service can use increased system resources when it processes requests for content. You can install the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service on a remote computer to minimize the impact on the delivery of messages and data to and from other BlackBerry Enterprise Server components and third-party applications, support multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances, or create a remote BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool for high availability.

For information about how to configure the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service for high availability, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Planning Guide.

This diagram shows the components that are described in the following text.
