- Install and configure Data Warehouse on the Manager machine.
This configuration requires only a single registered machine, and is the simplest to configure; however, it increases the demand on the host machine. Users who require access to the Data Warehouse service will require access to the Manager machine itself. See Configuring the Red Hat Virtualization Manager in the Installation Guide for more information on this configuration.
- Install and configure Data Warehouse a separate machine.
This configuration requires two registered machines. It reduces the load on the Manager machine and avoids potential CPU and memory-sharing conflicts on that machine. Administrators can also allow user access to the Data Warehouse machine, without the need to grant access to the Manager machine. See Section 1.2, “Installing and Configuring Data Warehouse on a Separate Machine” for more information on this configuration.
