FYI, I am using the embedded database. My PTP connection is 700mb with a 300mb backup ( some other wireless traffic is forced over the 300 ) If the 700 goes down usually don't drop a single ping on a continuous ping, before the switch flips it over.

But everything I have read says primarys should be as "close" to the database as possible. That sounds like I should use a satellite server for my instance.
