Where to install: The console can be installed on any server that has access to your SharePoint farm.
2. Recovery Manager SharePoint Agent – is a windows service. It is installed automatically on the machine where Recovery Manager for SharePoint is installed. It can be installed from a separate .msi package or from a link on RM autorun.

Where to install: Please refer to the specific backup type in Recovery Manager Documentation for more details.
Where to install: Each WFE server within your SharePoint environment.
3. Recovery Manager Backup Reader – installs core components of LiteSpeed and creates extended stored procedures on SQL server.
When to install: If you do not have LiteSpeed installed on your SQL server and want to take advantage of reading backups directly without temporary databases creation.
Note: The advantage can be achieved if you are going to restore small amounts of data from different backups. It is not recommended to use LiteSpeed mode if you are going to restore entire sites as it might take more time that using non-LiteSpeed mode.
LiteSpeed mode can be also referenced as OLR mode.
