Data Director provides Express and Advanced setup options. Express setup lets you deploy Data Director for development or experimentation. Advanced setup is suitable for production environments that require high availability and performance.

Before beginning the Data Director installation, determine whether to use Express setup to create a simplified Data Director deployment for development, or Advanced setup to create a production deployment.

Express setup is supported for a single VLAN network used with static IP addresses instead DHCP. If you do not adhere to these requirements, the Express setup option is disabled, and you must perform the Advanced setup.
