Getting into the Groove

For companies that prefer to run Groove themselves, rather than enlisting a third-party, there are a number of benefits.

"First, you gain greater control over managing the servers, controlling service levels, and handling security. Add to that the flexibility of how you set up your Groove servers, such as deploying them all in one datacenter or spreading them out. Finally, you can optimize your machines for behaviors on the network that only in-house experts know to expect," J. Peter Bruzzese explains.

Groove has three main components IT might install in its organization: Manager, Relay, and Data Bridge. Bruzzese examines them all in Getting into the Groove, part 2: Taking Groove in-house.

"Each has its own functionality and set of requirements that come together to help build out your Groove environment," Bruzzese adds.
