1.3 Teaming Configurations

You can configure Novell Teaming to run on a single server or multiple servers, depending on the size and needs of your Teaming site.



Single Server

By default, the Novell Teaming Installation program installs all Teaming components on the same server.

Remote Database Server

For better performance and scalability, you can install the Teaming database on a remote server

Remote Lucene Index Server

For better performance and scalability, you can install the Lucene index on a remote server

Multiple Teaming Servers

By running Novell Teaming on multiple servers, you can achieve high availability functionality, including failover and load balancing, depending on how you configure your servers.

Multiple Remote Lucene Servers

Your Novell Teaming site depends on the Lucene Index Server for full functionality. Running multiple Lucene Index Servers provides high availability functionality, so that if one Lucene Index Server goes down, Teaming users can still access the Teaming site because other Lucene Index Servers are still available.

Multiple Remote Database Servers

The three databases supported by Teaming each have their own approach to clustering the database server. Information about clustering database servers is available on the Internet.
