Retail deployment topologies now include the Retail Cloud Scale Unit (RCSU), which separates the Retail Server, Cloud POS server, Commerce run-time (CRT), and channel database components from the core back office. This improves performance across all aspects of the system by distributing the channel-specific workloads into a separate scale unit. In addition, the channel components can now be serviced independently, reducing downtime and allowing for coordination based on back-office or channel requirements.
