I put up a two server install with a really kick a$$ WebServer. The results are a bit disappointing. For our application, the two server setup is actually less responsive than a single server setup. I have a feeling the network connection and overhead of the two systems is what is causing the delay. I'm getting much more flashing, and the data is loading noticably slower into the screen. For our particular app, I have a hunch we are going to do better really maxing out a single server. The two server scenario may hold up better with more users, but I can't afford the slow down in the interaction with the interface. Will be trying to see if I can get the above question answered. Perhaps a better/dedicated connection between the two servers will alleviate some of the problem.
Anyway, we power on. ;-)
