Hi,

 

We are looking at available solutions to sync two author instances and one of the option we thought of using author to author replication.

Can we use this option to sync content between two instance? will this option have any implications on the performance or security?

any inputs would be great.

 

Thanks

@sayabannatole  I would suggest to use Grabbit for migrating/ syncing content between two instances. It's much faster and robust.

Replication would have performance issues with so many nodes to be replicated at the same time and would slow down the instances.

There is no problem in using author replication agent, but it is an additional overhead to production author when each page is published. You can use the below flow chart to select the right method for content synchronisation.

Hi @shelly-goel  Thanks for your response i will definitely have a look at using Grabbit. My concern about using author to replication is still workable option right , barring the performance issues which can be accommodated with enough resources on both instances?
