Architecture: Remote BlackBerry Administration Service

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

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

You can install the BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager with the BlackBerry Administration Service. You can install the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager separately to make sure that BlackBerry device users cannot access the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
