Quadrotech PST Flight Deck 9.1.3 - Administration Guide


Locations permit work to be assigned into geographically appropriate groupings without the overhead of deployment and management of independent migration environments. This enables an organization to centralize and process PST files in data centres close to the users and their data. Enabling the ability to support multiple locations can reduce overall environmental network consumption and the time for project completion.


PST Flight Deck permits the ability to scale out an environment to offload the burden on any given system in the environment. For small and mid-sized projects with no special requirements, a standard deployment may be sufficient. For larger environments or projects with tight time requirements, processing modules may be distributed over several machines to scale the system to match the environment’s needs or reduce bottlenecks in the workflow. These computers with module components of PST Flight Deck installed are referred to as “nodes”.


When considering the scalability of your PST Flight Deck environment there are many factors to consider. Please consult a qualified PST Flight Deck Architect prior to scaling out an environment.

Node Functions

Part of the flexibility of PST Flight Deck is the modular approach that is taken within its architecture. The functions required to perform a migration can be run over multiple nodes. This permits many of the same modules to be run in parallel or assigned to specific locations.

Module Node

Module Nodes are servers with PST Flight Deck modules installed on them. They encompass all PST Flight Deck servers containing modules and not included in another node type. Module nodes can be used to scale processing of any module workload to permit rapid processing of items uploaded.


Most Module Nodes do not have any special considerations outside of resource availability and the ability to communicate to the Core. Extraction and repair nodes have high disk requirements and are typically located on the machine with the highspeed disks used for the BITS upload directory.
