Using DFP with multiple server setup


A quick query if I may.

I have a client who may be looking to expand their web site to a multi-server operation. At the moment the database and file server all sit together and uploads simply take place on the same file server.

If they decided to move to a standalone database and 2,3,4 front end servers would DFP still be useful to me if i needed to upload to a specific 'assets' server?

depends on the purpose and set up of the multiple servers.

normally, using multiple servers is for load balancing.

This means that each server is an exact duplicate of the others, when a browser makes a request for your website, the server that has the least traffic on it jumps to fulfill the request.

This means that the assets directory that files are uploaded to exists on all of the servers, when a file is uploaded, it is uploaded to the server that is currently fulfilling the website request, then copied to the others, so that it exists on the other servers as well.

There may be a delay in the copying process, but it should be too long.
