When a Graphic Hub is installed a mode must be selected. This section details information on the different modes, to help with the selection. Depending on the mode which is to be installed, a Graphic Hub license dongle may be required.
The Graphic Hub can be installed for a Cluster, Multi User or Single User:
A Cluster installation is an installation with multiple servers for multiple clients to access a Graphic Hub. To install a Graphic Hub as a Cluster, use the Main Server and Replication Server modes.
The 5/4 Free and Multiuser configurations give access to multiple concurrent TCP/IP connections to a Graphic Hub.
5/4 Free provides up to five connections and is recommended for sharing content in small Viz Artist work-groups. For example, installations on laptops and single workstations. This mode does not require a license dongle.
Multiuser provides up to 800 (if required) connections (dongle required) and is recommended for all scalable Viz Artist work-groups. This mode requires a license dongle.
A Localhost configuration is a single connection to a Graphic Hub. This mode is for local Viz Artist installations, without a permanent network connection, and without the requirement of a license dongle. For example, installations on laptops and single workstations.
