Sorry for the late publishing of your post!

I think you'll want to have a look at our clustering feature: What is the clustering feature in PRTG?

At least, that's what it sounds like. If you rather want to make a backup of your PRTG installation in order to move it to another server, please refer to this thread.

Let me know if you have any further questions left :)

Thank you for your message. Can we use virtual server for clustering feature in PRTG? and Has this process limitation or not ? Thank you for your interest.

Virtual machines are possible, yes. Make sure it's as powerfull as your PRTG core server in terms of CPU, RAM and disk performance. However, if you reach above 5,000 sensors, physical hardware is recommended for both systems.
