Pinned topic adding server(s) overseas

‏2009-03-26T20:11:17Z |
We have a new office opening overseas and are experiencing serious latency issues with Capture. If building a bigger pipe is not feasible at this time, what are the options for using Capture? Do we need to build a whole new sister IS system to keep it on LAN instead of WAN?

    Hi,
    I'm not sure about the load and other detail to provide accurate answer. You can add an application server (BES) to the new site and have enough cache to handle the load. This may work for you.

      That is along the line of what I was thinking. Just wanted to hear someone else say it to confirm. Thanks.

    you can consider three options:

    1. BES server
    2. Remote capture services
    3. Create a peer system so system A multi commits docs across to system B.

    Obviously each will have own merits / licencing implications

      I think we need more than a BES server because the overseas office is also doing a lot of file loading via the web browsers. Thus, it needs to commit. It is taking a long time for them to load files.

      With a second IS system and using multi-committal, how does a user of the original IS system identify documents that are committed to the remote system, since they obviously will have different doc ids? I was hoping to avoid this scenario and have documents only kept in storage on original system, but that doesn't seem feasible.

        What you need to do is make each IS system have non overlapping document ids and peer systems for multi system commit.

        When docs are committed from system A to system B they will retain the docid given to it on committal of system A to system B.

        Setup non overlapping docids and peer systems in fn_edit

        Hope this helps
