Managed service providers (MSPs) typically have a single XIA Configuration Server installation and one or more XIA Configuration Client installations in each customer environment.

This allows a single managed repository of technical information whilst allowing the XIA Configuration Client to be installed behind each customer's firewall and configured with credentials appropriate for the customer environment.

As a cloud based solution the Azure tenant scan tasks can either be executed by the XIA Configuration Client installed in each customer environment, or directly from the MSP environment. 

The following compares the two options.
