Local Installation Scenarios (Multiple Business Units)

Last Updated: May 25, 2016 02:30PM NZST

Options 1 and 2 will require separate installations and licenses. This of course will not impact the license fees calculations but does mean you will need to perform two separate installation and license operations.

Option 1 – Separate Physical Installations

Two servers, each with the their own installation of the SnapComms environment. One server, with its own SnapComms Content Manager instance would service one unit of the company, while the other server, also with its own SnapComms Content Manager instance would service the other.

Note: if you ever wanted to send the same message to both units you would need to login to each of the Content Manager instances to send the communication to each i.e. you would need to send the same message two times.

Option 2 – Virtual Separation

One server, with two separate databases and two virtualised webserver instances. Each respective database and webserver instance would service its own unit. In essence a single server is set up with two separate SnapComms Content Manager instance, once services for the first unit and one for the other.

Note: if you ever wanted to send the same message to both units you would need to login to each of the Content Manager instances to send the communication to each i.e. you would need to send the same message two times.

Option 3 – Single Instance

One server with one installation of SnapComms environment resulting in a single SnapComms Content Manager instance. This single instance would service both company units. To ensure Administrative separation, it will be necessary that the first and second unit have distinct and separate AD based groups, ideally each contained within their own separate domains. This means Admin Permissions can be applied to logically separate Admin access to Target Groups (as well as content folders) with the intent to allow 1) Unit 1 Admins to be able to only target Unit 1 groups (and not Unit 2 groups) and 2) Unit 2 Admins to be able to only target Unit 2 groups (and not Unit 1 groups).

Note: if you ever wanted to send the same message to both, then an Admin with permission to access all Target Groups could do so with a single communication.
