    Default Site schema

    Say a company wants to access a database on their intranet, and also share the database on their website.<BR><BR>If they don&#039t want to host their own website, but would rather use colocation or a shared hosting package where should the database reside? Two copies, one local and one on the host with some kind of synchronization. Or the database just on the web host? Or just on the local network shared through the firewall?

    I&#039d personally recommend using an "extranet" for this sort of behavior- leaving the application, db, etc., all on the external server.<BR><BR>Of course, this depends on a number of variables:<BR>1. Reliability of their connection,<BR>2. Expense/maintenance of two replicating SQL servers,<BR>3. Security concerns of direct access to the internal db server.<BR><BR>Depending on the scale of the project, I&#039d either leave everything external or replicate. Opening an unnecessary gateway to an internal server is just generally a bad idea. Of course, if you have security experts in-house, it may not be such a concern.<BR><BR>HTH,<BR>-Matt
