One of our board members has become "interested" in our issues and has suggested that we move our users to local replicas rather than having them tied to the server databases all of the time. (We run a clustered environment for redundancy -- but the switch to the secondary server when the primary one crashes has not been as seamless as we would like.)
Can you point me to a source (or answer the question) as to when local replicas are appropriate or better vs. server databases? (We have few mobile users and have 100 MB+ network speeds to the desktop. We have 3,000 users to be expanded to about 6,000.)
P.S. I am the CIO and have a very good Notes staff. I am looking for some outside validation of our approach.
