Install Remote Differential Compression BITS for ConfigMgr

Today we will discuss Install Remote Differential Compression BITS for ConfigMgr. Let’s dive deep into a step-by-step guide to Installing Remote Differential Compression and BITS for ConfigMgr SCCM or MEMCM. These two components are part of SCCM’s primary server installation prerequisites.

Remote Differential Compression (RDC) is an algorithm used for client-server file synchronization. It communicates only the differences between two files to synchronize them. In later versions of Windows, the implementation of cross-file RDC allows for identifying similar files to the replicated one.

This feature maximizes data transfer efficiency over the WAN by utilizing identical blocks from similar files. Notably, cross-file RDC can harness blocks from up to five similar files. Ensure that every computer hosting a site server or a distribution point installs Remote Differential Compression (RDC).

RDC is essential for generating package signatures and comparing digital signatures, especially for applications transferring data across wide area networks (WANs) where data transmission costs are substantial compared to CPU costs for signature computation. Additionally, RDC can also be beneficial on faster networks when transferring relatively large amounts of data with typically small changes.
