MEGA Deployment Architecture - Combining Web and App Tier

Hi there,

 

Just to clarify some deployment architecture as we are trying to set up servers to host MEGA in our enterprise.

 

From my understanding of MEGA solution architecture, the solution is divided into 3 tiers (with their main MEGA's components)

 

Web Tier

1) MEGA Advisor

 

App Tier (File Server)

1) MEGA Env File

2) MEGA License Folder

 

DB Tier

1)RDMS

 

My question is, will it be advisable to combined Web and App tier together?

 

I observed that the APP tier(File Server) hardware sizing requirements is considerably low as compared to the other two.

 

*Apologies that i posted in the wrong forum section. Moderator do move this topic to the relevant section for clarity

Re: MEGA Deployment Architecture - Combining Web and App Tier

Hi Robin,

 

I have 3 clients using the infrastructure you are talking about.

A single server hosting:

  • Web Advisor
  • Env File
  • Licence

A MS SQL farm hosting the DB.

 

Some users have a local mega installation to access the same licence, same env files and same SQL DB.

 

No issues to report so far.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi Francois ,

 

Thank you for the insights.

 

If you don't mind, may i ask what was the user base of the client?

 

I am looking at 15 Advisor connection profiles with around 60 (but growing) concurrent designers.

Hi Robin,

 

you sure can.

 

In the first case:

- 5 BA (heavy users)

- 3 EA  (heavy users)

- 10 Web Editor

- 50 Advisor Read only user

 

In the second one:

- 2 BA (heavy users)

- 3 EA  (heavy users)

- 4 Solution Architects

- 10 Web Editor

- 60 Advisor Read only user

 

The sizing of servers is important here.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers,
