Site Configuration to Deploy BeyondTrust Atlas Cluster Technology

A graphic of a globe.

BeyondTrust Atlas Technology is designed for large-scale geographical deployments of BeyondTrust. With Atlas, you use a single BeyondTrust site across multiple appliances, referred to as nodes in a cluster. Since the administration is primarily performed on a master appliance, BeyondTrust cluster configuration has minimal administration impact.

This guide describes the step-by-step setup details and the options you may wish to consider.

  1. Review the Prerequisites to Set Up Multiple Appliances in Atlas Clusters and the Optional Considerations when Setting Up Multiple Appliances in Atlas Clusters.
  2. Configure each Privileged Remote Access appliance as if it were a stand-alone appliance, using the same software package on each appliance.


For more information about configuring your appliances, please see the Secure Remote Access Appliance Hardware Installation Guide and the Appliance Administration Guide. For more information about BeyondTrust settings and sessions, please see the Administrative User Guide and Access Console User Guide.
