A Gabriel Domain Server is a specialized Gabriel client device that performs dedicated server functions for users in secure domain (e.g. user.company.scom). These services include Secure Mail routing and storage, Chat/Messaging backup and syncing and Secure Share file hosting. If necessary, multiple Domain Servers may be designated to support a given domain, as the number of users in a domain grows.
A user’s designated server, a personal server or domain-provided server, should not to be confused with the the VirnetX SDNS Connect and Relay servers which consists of multiple inter-operable servers designed to scale in size, number and location as the number of overall Gabriel users grows. This architecture is also designed to provide automatic redundancy when servers go down unexpectedly or for routine maintenance.
