Failover and load ballancing over 2 sites?
I have to give a resillient solution design for a new SEP infrastructure and I am a little unsure of the supported methods of a SEPM configuration where failover and/or clustering is used between 2 geographically dispersed sites. The 2 datacentres will be directly linked by a 100mb connection and each datacentre also has a link into the corporate MPLS cloud. All sites are connected to the datacentres through the MPLS cloud.
What I'd ideally like is to have one SEPM in datacentre 1 and another SEPM in datacentre 2, both with the same priority so that the 5000 clients we have will split between the 2. If one of these goes down then the other SEPM will pick up the load until the other comes back online.
From what I have read, I don't beleive a load ballanced scenario across sites is supported. Can anyone confirm that I have understood that correctly?
If so, what would be my best supported solution?
