Should I create a subdomain or a seperate domain for our expansion into Europe
Posted on 2008-09-30
Our company is expanding and creating a new office in Munich, while our corporate headquarters and colocation facilities are in NYC. The office is up and running in terms of internet and routing with a 100 ms latency. Microsoft recommends not to do a subdomain to replicate data, but I'm not so sure that is entirely accurate, as others I know have done this in the past. Our company's domain right now is just the default name, for example - "default.com". I am just trying to create "europe.default.com"
First - Will the 100ms latency be a problem in terms of replicating Active Directory information and a small DFS system.
Two - Is the subdomain the appropriate configuration for this setup, or should I be exploring other options.
Any help would be much appreciated from experienced users, I need to make a decision on this by end of day.
