Creating server groups and installing BlackBerry Connectivity Node instances
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeinstances
You can install one or more instances of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeto add additional instances of the device connectivity components to your organization’s domain. Each
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeinstance contains the following
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus, the
BlackBerry Gatekeeping Service, the
BlackBerry Secure Gateway,
BlackBerry Proxy, and the
BlackBerry Cloud Connector.
You can also create server groups. A server group contains one or more instances of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node. When you create a server group, you specify the regional data path that you want the components to use to connect to the
BlackBerry Infrastructure. You can associate email and enterprise connectivity profiles with a server group. Any device that is assigned those profiles uses that server group’s regional connection to the
BlackBerry Infrastructurewhen it uses any of the components of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node.
Optionally, you can designate each
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodein a server group to handle a single connection type:
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plusonly,
BlackBerry Secure Gatewayonly, or
BlackBerry Proxyonly. This frees up server resources to allow fewer servers required for the same number of users or containers.

BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeinstances, see the Planning content.
