Often administrators want to start with a smaller user set and then increase
them gradually. However, splitting a server once the backup strategy goes in
production can be a tedious task since you will have to change the URL in every
Syncrify client so they point to a newer server.
To solve this problem,
assign a handful of host names to the same IP address in your DNS server. For example:
All of these four host names should initially refer to the same IP address.
Evenly distribute these host names among your users - meaning 25% of users
should use backup1.yourcompany.com in their URL, the next 25% should use
backup2.yourcompany.com and so on.
Later on if you decide to
split your server in to two machines, all you need is to change the IP
address in your DNS server and 50% of your users will connect to the new
machine without any modification on the client side.
