Quick Start Guide
You can use this Quick Start Guide to set up a simple CommCell environment and to perform basic data protection and recovery operations, which might be useful as a proof of concept or in a test environment. This guide is not intended to be used to deploy the software in a production environment without careful planning. If you are deploying the software in a production environment, see Installations.
