A MediaAgent is a data transmission manager in the CommCell environment that manages the data movement and the data storage targets including the tape, disk and cloud. By default, one MediaAgent is installed when you set up the Command Center. However, you can add multiple MediaAgents to enhance the scalability of your setup.

The following operations can be performed:

  • Add multiple MediaAgents

  • Enable or disable the MediaAgent

  • Set the MediaAgent on maintenance mode
