Given a use case of a primarily web direct deployed solution that is transaction heavy (lots of record creation) with 10 users and usually only 5 simultaneous users...
What is the the real difference between an 8 core single machine deployment and a two machine deployment with a 4 core server each? How does FMS balance the WPE internally on the single machine deployment? Is one way a benefit over the other?
Here are a few things I see at a glance:
CPU speed-4core CPUs can usually be found in faster speeds. How much of that speed is taken away by the need to communicate between the servers?
Bandwidth-Pro/Go client traffic to the database server are not inhibited by web UI data moving through the DB server connection.
