The various objects defined in the PingDirectoryProxy are specific to a particular location.
Location names can define a grouping of PingDirectoryProxy products based on physical proximity.
A location is usually associated with a single data center location. During the installation, assign a location to each server for optimal inter-server behavior. The location assigned to a server within Global Configuration can be referenced by components within the server as well as processes external to the server to satisfy "local" versus "remote" decisions used in replication, load balancing, and failover.
