Re: Global & Local controller

If you only want 1 MARS, then you only need to get the Local Controller.

You would only need to get Global controller if you would like the Global controller to manage all your Local controllers.

Here is what the global controllers are capable off:

• Aggregation of reports across the Local Controller deployment

•  Defining Rules, Reports and User accounts for Local Controllers (Note:  Configuration of Local Controller is done "locally" on the individual LC  appliance)

• Remote, distributed upgrade of the Local Controllers

Hope that helps.
