Architecture: Remote BlackBerry MDS Connection Service

You can install the BlackBerry® MDS Connection Service on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server. The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service can use increased system resources when it processes requests for content. You can install the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service on a remote computer to minimize the impact on the delivery of messages and data, support multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances, or create a BlackBerry MDS Connection Service pool that can support multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances.

For information about configuring BlackBerry MDS Connection Service high availability, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Planning Guide.
