Re: Deploying Odoo on 2 servers

In server management especially on a large scale setup, the "ideal" is really 1 server per "function".

In a normal network, 1 application server, 1 database server, 1 domain server etc. All this means to
"prevent" major downtimes. Each server to house only what it is designed to do.

1) Definitely you can have Odoo apps running on 1 server and the database running on the other
but you would have to manually set this up to "point" the App to the database as I have not seen
in the setup that this can be done. I may be wrong, but normally with other applications this can be done.

2) Load balancing, am not clear what you need. If you are concerned about traffic then separating
the app from the database will not do much since your users will still access 1 box. Another
way to do it is setup 2 servers as a cluster and install the app on that cluster, then the load
will be distributed between this 2 servers. is this what you want?

Hope this give you ideas.

I am looking for a semi simple means of deployed odoo on 2 servers. One for the front end the other for postgres.

Is there a simple means of accomplishing this?

My underlying reason may not even require this, so I'll explain .

We will have about 60-80 users, with a total erp system deployment (accounting, purchasing, sales, WHMS, some HR).

Assuming I have a powerful server ( dual 8core 2.8g xeons with 64 GB ram ) would I be able to run at least 40 concurrent connection without a slow down on the server?.

I have heard of people deploying the front end on one box and see ding the data to another box in order to balance the load.

I am looking for some advice here so please have at it.

Thanks all.
