Hi Experts,

I currently have 2 x dedicated servers both in the same datacentre.

Would having a SQL server in Germany and the forward facing server in the UK have any adverse speed issues or anything else I woudl need to be concerned about.

I need to have the forward facing one in the UK mainly for the customer service that my host offers and to help with UK search engine results.

Look froward to your comments.

hmm, that sounds impossible according your description:
  1. servers both in the same datacenter
  2. SQL server in Germany
  3. server in UK

You either need to make Germany=UK or explain better what you mean ;-)

Currently I have 2 servers in the same data centre in the UK

I am thinking of re-locating the sql server to Germany due to cost savings - could this prove to be less reliable than having both servers in a UK datacentre or should it make little difference?

should be secure if you use an encrypted conection (SSL or whatever) *and* the web application has no vulnerabilities.

well, performance should not be a problem as long as you do not pull or push huge data for each request between the  servers
Performance also depends on your network bandwidth, which will be the bottleneck.
