Default 1 Server in Central location / 1 server each

Hi guys!

I have some decision to make regarding whether to deploy the database on 2 seperate servers or just 1 server. Hence hope that you guys can provide me with some information to help me in making this decision.

Below is the current situation.

Currently, I am maintaining 2 database used by 2 seperate groups of users. These 2 groups of users are based in 2 different sites, sites A and sites B.

In the past, the 2 databases are maintaind on a shared drive in sites A. However, unbearable data access speed by users in sites B prompted me to split the database into 2 -> 1 in country A and 1 in sites B.

With this backgroud, my questions are as follows....

If I migrate to the SQL Server, where should I deploy it? In 2 seperate locations or in 1 centralised location? Will I be expecting great increase in speed?

To give a rough idea of the current network condition that I am facing...
From sites A, to access a table in sites B will take 9 secs.
From sites B, to access the same table in sites B will take at most 3 sec

What is your database now if you are not using SQL Server? You will definately get a boost in performance by migrating to SQL Server, and I would put it in 1 centralized location based on the information above.

Do the databases contain the exact same information? If so, you have syncing issues to deal with if you put 1 in each location.

I would start by putting 1 in a central location and then monitor the speed. Adjustments can be made from there.

Hi SQL Scott!

Currently on each site, there is one MS Access MDB File acting as the file server. The users access this MDB via a MS Access MDE file that contains all the forms, queries, reports and etc.

The 2 database contains different set of data. However, I will need to process both data sets for analysis purpose.

Thanks.
