8 Computer hooked up to one back-end database
Posted on 2014-04-02
I am setting up a small office for our business. There will be 8 computers working with front end databases hooked up to one back-end table.
How many housing switchboards should I use?
Is it better to use just one housing switch board? This would entail all eight computers hooked as well as the backend computer hooked up through one switch board. This would create a ton of wires throughout the room.
If possible, can I have only run one wire across the room and hook two switch boads up to it? This would mean the data would have to go through two switchboard (with one wire inbetween them). Will this slow down the speed?
The computers will also be hooked up to internet through these Ethernet cords.
I apologize if I am off with my vocab describing it... hopefully this makes sense.
Any other issues I should be on the look out for?
