The Swarm Control Center is based on a dark environment approach, which ensures that at no time, Swarm Analytics is in the loop when it comes to data & management traffic. Therefore, the deployment is done within your Azure cloud and will utilize common infrastructure services.
The Swarm Control Center works as centralized management hub for all connected Swarm Perception Boxes - this ensures centralized updates, basic monitoring and simple configuration through a single entry point.
