Here is my current Sharepoint 2010 setup. I have 3 VM's running on the same server. The 3 VM's are as follows (all Windows 2008 R2)
1) Active Directory server
2) Sharepoint server
3) SQL Server
The initial setup was done by another IT staff who has now left the company. The problem I have is that I have co-workers in another country (Asia), and they are experiencing extremely slow setup because they have to VPN in to access Sharepoint.
How can I expand the Sharepoint 2010 server farm? Here are several scenarios I can think of:
1) Setup another Sharepoint server VM on the local server in Asia, and have it point to the same SQL server
2) Setup another SQL server on the local server in Asia, but the problem is how do I sync the databases?
Ideally I would want employees in the US and Asia access the same Sharepoint with the same information, with an acceptable speed (ie: loading a page that takes up to 20 secs is a little ridiculous..)
Any help greatly appreciated!
