For customers looking for a larger deployment, we recommend splitting the server and node onto separate VMs with our Docker image install. This not only improves performance, but also improves security as it allows the server and node to keep SSH credentials isolated away from each other.
Splitting the deployment is almost as fast as the single image cloud deployment. The main difference is we will need VMs for the server and scanning nodes. After you install the server you'll need to copy over some configuration files onto the node to allow them to operate. Otherwise, operation is identical to single system deployments.
