    Load balancing and files replication


    I'm currently building a site with Umbraco 7 and soon, I'll have to deploy it behind a load balancer. I read a lot of documentation about that but something is still not clear to me; what is the exact role of DFS?

    When a web site is installed on several servers, do I need to execute deployments on each one of them to update files (DLL, views, etc...) or only on the master one and DFS ensures that everything is pushed to the other environment?

    It depends if you are deploying to a "synchronised" (Option #2) file system or to a "non-replicated" (Option #1) file system setup. Both are supported by Umbraco, however when using "non-synchronised" you cannot use the backoffice editors for css or views as the files won't get replicated between servers.

    Ok, that I get, but I was wondering about the initial setup. How do you deploy the site first? You install the master server normally (the app pool, the iis site, copy of the files and configuration of Umbraco), but what about the other servers? You just need to create the app pool and the IIS site and then DFS ensures that everything else is copied and synchronized?
