Default Remote SQL database

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know the bandwidth dependancy between the BES server and the remote SQL database? We are hoping to use a SQL database for one of our remote BES servers but want to make sure the connection will be ok. Our remote office where the BES is has a 2mb link to our main office where the SQL server is. Is this sufficient?

Performance Characteristics white paper. Page 20 lists some statistics recorded between the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and SQL 2000.

This is for Domino, I'm sure they have the exact same white paper for Exchange and Groupwise.

I would suggest a higher bandwith than 2mb, depending on the email load such as how many users on that BES box. We use pure Domino 6.5.4 on VMware. The Sql Server is Windows 2K3 on a separate server, not vmware.

We currently have over 100mb line in our NY Environment. I just did the Remote SQL Server last week and it works great. Dont take such a risk especially with a home bes server and the remote sql server.
