Server management

YugabyteDB uses a two-server architecture, with YB-TServers managing the data and YB-Masters managing the metadata. You can use the yb-tserver and yb-master binaries to start and configure the servers.

For simplified deployment, use the yugabyted utility. yugabyted acts as a parent server across the YB-TServer and YB-Masters servers.
