The Central/Site architecture consists of one Central server and multiple site servers. The Central server performs license management, central system management (the Central server administrator can access and manage all the site servers) and user management. In addition, it functions as a central reporting server for statistical data. It cannot be used as a print server and its options are restricted solely to its central management role. Therefore it is not possible to administer printing devices or print jobs there.
All of the Central server's data are stored to the MyQ Database, where they can be accessed and managed. The server contains an Embedded (Firebird) database, but can also be used with an external MS SQL database.
The site servers work as print servers and perform local management of printing devices and print jobs. Data from these servers are replicated to the Central server's database and can be displayed in reports on the Central server.
