Guidance on best practices for performance and load balancing?

Apr 30, 2010 at 2:10 PM

Are there any guidelines available for the best way to split the components of MSE in a load-balanced scenario? The existing infrastructure uses a load balancer in front of a 6 server web farm. What concerns should we look at in determining how to implement MSE in this environment, and what impact on scalability will this have? Is the best practice to add additional infrastructure (new servers for MSE) between the load balancer and the web farm? Is it better to replace the load balancer with a system running MSE (with services split appropriately among the 6 servers to balance load)?

I haven't seen much guidance.  Right now we have two servers that sit behind a load balancer.  Each server has the full runtime and service catalog installed and point to a shared database.  We haven't ramped up much in production will be soon and I'll let you know if we run in to any issues.
