If your RDM data source contains more than 5000 entries, you may start to experience some slowness and performance issues. In the past, the workaround we advised was to split your data source into multiple sources. The good news is that this fixes the performance issues. The bad news is that you must manage multiple databases and security systems. Well, guess what? We’ve created a much better solution: say hello to Remote Desktop Manager Repositories!
What Are Repositories?
Repositories are essentially compartments in a single database. Instead of handling the whole data source as a single block of data, repositories handle a smaller subset. As a result, you can manage a massive amount of entries as you normally would, but without experiencing diminished performance. And since you aren’t breaking the database up into multiple smaller databases, you can maintain a single set of users, security groups and roles, which cuts down on administration time (and headaches!). Now, you might be wondering how to split your entries, a good example would be one data source for your lab environment and one for your production environment; or let’s say you have offices around the world you could easily split them geographically.
