The situation is as follows. The network provider of my customer is about to install two server machines (each in a different location but with a fast (fiber?) connection between them) and Windows Server2012 using VMWare6 run the virtual machines on.
Would it be a good solution to have each server host two VM's each running FMS14 and have FMS14 use the other VM to cross-link the fallback server?
So each server would actually run two VM's each with a FileMaker server:
- server A runs FMS A as production and FMS B' as backup server for the other machine (FMS B);
- server B runs FMS B as production and FMS A' as backup server for FMS A.
All this will work only if the VM's can have their own IP adress ofcourse.
