Applicable to Sisense on Microsoft Windows
Note: Sisense now offers multi-node deployments on Linux cloud native. Multi-node deployments on Windows are no longer sold. Sisense continues to support existing deployments of this type.
With a multi-node deployment, you can increase the reliability of your configuration further by adding additional query and build nodes, and an application node.
To simplify the process of setting up a Multi-Node environment, Sisense provide a Multi-Node Deployment Wizard that automates most of the setup process for you.
Note: If you are expanding a single-node deployment to a multi-node deployment, see Expanding Single-Node Deployments to Multi-Node Deployments.
