Windows Repo VS. Linux Repo

Post by lobo519 » Jan 16, 2012 2:48 pm

I am rethinking my design and I am curious if there are any advantages (speed, etc.) between a windows repository and a LInux one.

Right now I have a windows proxy and a linux repo. I was considering combining them and just having one Windows Proxy/Repo. I only ever have a replication job or a backup job running never both at the same time.

Any disadvantages doing this?

I don't see any disadvantages.

Advantages of this approach are:
- Backup traffic does not have to go over the network from proxy to repository, which is a good thing
- vPower NFS server is local to repository, providing for better performance (Linux repositories can only use remote vPower NFS servers)
