Anyone famillar with DFS, I'd like your input on using it for this purpose.
We are looking for a way to syncronize a folder accross multiple web servers. The content is images for IIS.
Proposed config: Replace current local folder of images (approx 100 thousand files) with a DFS share of these images. Needs quick replication and redundancy.
Current config: 8 web servers with approx 100 sites each (identical) pulling images from local folders that are syncronized via robocopy.exe.
Note - the image files change regularly.
Ideal - access the images from the DFS folder locally on each web server. However I've read that accessing content directly rather then via the DFS tree can be problematic.
Thanks in advance for input and suggestions.
