Data Stored on the Meraki Primary Controller

Primary Controller

Generally, Meraki customer data that come back to the Meraki cloud are kept in whichever geographical region the dashboard organization is based in. However, for top-level management purposes and for global alignment, some data are forwarded from regional data centers to a central Meraki server primary controller.

Note that end-user data are never sent back to the primary controller. The items listed below are only for account/configuration management purposes.
