SQL Server for Multiple EV servers in Multiple physical sites

Created: 22 Mar 2013 • Updated: 05 May 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi We have two physical sites one in Reading and one in Manchester.

Our SQL Server is in Reading.

First EV Server is in Reading

Second EV Server is in Manchester under same EV Site.

We have 2GB Links between Reading and Manchester sites. 

At the moment both EV servers are working fine.

Do you think we should have a local SQL Server for Vault Store DBs in Manchester? Or shall we have a Separate EV site as standalone EV in Manchester?

What is the recommended design option in this scenario?

Many Thanks

When it isn't broken, don't fix it.

Is it working according to expectation? Leave it as is. If not, walk over to the Symantec Building, and ask someone there :-) (they're in Reading, but you probably know)

Thank you, Gertjan, MCSE, MCITP,MCTS, SCS, STS

One thing to consider ...

How many users have you got in each location?

Another thing to consider ...

Are you only doing mailbox archiving, or journaling too?

And another ...

Where are your internet connection points?

And finally ...

Are your users using Vault Cache heavily?
