It is important to recognize that one configuration is not ideal for all companies. We recommend multiple collections in a tree only if you use a hierarchical structure using geographical or functional organizations with different administrators in each location. Following are the most common situations together with suggestions for managing their respective collections:
A hierarchical tree organized to reflect a geographical organization
Create a collection in every geographical location and have one or more iManager servers per location. Login time is faster and tree navigation is simplified. Each geographical administrator manages the collection of a specified location.
A hierarchical tree that reflects the company's organizational structure
Create one collection at the same level as the organization and have one or more iManager servers as company size requires. You manage only one collection.
A flat tree in which all objects are in a unique container
Create one collection as a sibling of the unique container and have one or more iManager servers as company size requires. You manage only one collection.
