Standalone system

A standalone installation of CitectSCADA runs every server and client component of a system on a single computer. These include:

This allows CitectSCADA to be run as a small, self contained system.

Note: You can run the server and client components of a standalone system as a single-process or multi-process system. It is recommended that a single- process setup only be used as a short term solution for your control system, or to run demonstrations and test projects. Adding redundancy to your system will make it more reliable and more efficient.
