Taking Advantage of the Crystal Enterprise Distributed Architecture

This section of the chapter discusses how the Crystal Enterprise Framework and all the services that it provides are most effectively deployed.

This distributed nature gives an organization a great deal of flexibility in how it might want to deploy Crystal Enterprise in its environments. How Crystal Enterprise is deployed will depend on the way in which the system is expected to be used, how many users are expected to be active in the system at any given time, and how many objects are expected to be processed at any given time.
