Replication Shares are devices that keep copies of files for distribution, and they are especially useful if managed devices are deployed across multiple geographic locations. Replication Shares can be used to deploy Managed Installations, Patches, or Dell Updates on computers located at remote sites, as to download resources locally instead of consuming bandwidth and time.
For example, using a Replication Share, a device in New York could download files from another device at the same office, rather than downloading those files from a KACE SMA in Los Angeles. A Replication Share is a full replication of all digital assets and is managed automatically by the appliance. Whenever a Replication Share is specified for a label, devices in that label go to the Replication Share to get files.
This article will explain some of the necessary situations and steps to take to begin the process of using Replication Shares.
