In a master-slave deployment with a high Web Access load, the setup consists of a master server, a slave server, and a slave server dedicated to Web Access. In this setup, the iFolder server and the database are typically located on the master and slave servers, and the client workstations are connected to the iFolder server. This setup also uses a dedicated iFolder Web Access server to serve and prioritize a high number of iFolder Web Access client requests. This scenario is illustrated in the following figure:
