A Node Server behaves almost identically to Root Server and is the primary mechanism of scaling. Its job is to manage further distribution of system resources to provide process scaling and assist in the fault tolerance of the system.
When a Project Server is registered with Root Server and eventually passed off to a Node Server, the Node Server distributes Client Screen Savers as they enter the system to the waiting project.
When a given Project is completed
or fails, the Client Screen Savers are dynamically passed to other Projects to keep the system as active as possible.
