Let's say I have a 2013 SP1 system with a fairly large BP (50 sites) with high volume that suffers from poor performance in publishing & deployment (unscaled) with all content going to a Tridion Broker DB (DD4T TBBs)
I am planning on suggesting the following
- Increase the number of dedicated content publishers, separate machines
- Increase the number of deployers, separate machines, load balanced
Now, as I understand perhaps the best way do this is to split the publications so each one is assigned uniquely to a specific publisher for optimum publishing. Ideally I'd like to do that with a single target of "Production" to avoid separately named targets, but I can probably live with that by limiting the publications per target so there's no cross pollination.
However I'm not sure how to best configure the Deployer architecture - will there be consistency issues in the DB and with CCS if there are load balanced deployers writing to a single DB?
