| | Ideal BES setup for 2 offices?
Please Login to Remove!
We are headquartered in the US and our current Exchange and BES server reside on the same local LAN. We have employees all over the world and also a branch office in London. We are setting up an Exchange PostOffice in London so that their mail is local to them rather than connecting back to the US. We are dealing with 1 domain.
What is the ideal BES setup if we want to deploy BlackBerrys in Europe? A second BES in London connected to the local Exchange server there? We have a dedicated VPN tunnel between offices, 100 ms latency however. I assume we need the second BES since it is more than 35ms apart?
As for the database, should I even attempt to use the same SQL database in the US, or setup a second database to be local in London?
