We are considering spinning up a DC in a remote datacenter.  Each facility has 100mbps fiber..  It's shared but we get spikes up to 60 - 70 mbps... We have a site to site VPN between each site..  I want to add a DC to one of the sites..  The current and only DC is at the other site..  Will this be okay?  They only have 20 x users.. Also.  We plan to keep a DC at each location..  I wouldn't imagine there is a ton of changes / syncs between each DC.  They'll be 2012 DC's..

If you implement a Site in your AD infrastructure, and use seperate network subnets, thenyou can then control the traffic between DCs using Site connectors. So a sync once or twice an hour would be enough over a 100Mbps link.

I forgot about this option.. This makes my design so much easier..  I have 100 mbps bursts and it's a small AD environment so might not be needed.. But.. Something to consider if needed.  Thanks.
