The Central Management Server with Global High Availability (CMS with GTO) is located inside a corporation’s intranet. CMS requires a new type of license called a CMS License that is issued by SonicWall.
The CMS runs as a virtual machine that can be hosted on VMware ESX/ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, AWS, Azure, and KVM. CMS is not designed to run on custom hardware such as VPN appliances.
CMS with GTO provides the following features:
- Central Management Console (CMC) to monitor, maintain, and configure SMA appliances
- Simplified license management with a centralized license that eliminates the need for individual appliance licenses
- Centralized alerts via the console dashboard and SNMP traps
- Global Traffic Optimizer (GTO)
