Intrasite Versus Intersite Replication
When you are planning site structure, keep in mind that the two replication models are handled differently. The intrasite replication model is optimized for high bandwidth connections. The intersite replication model is optimized for limited bandwidth connections.
When replication occurs within a domain, the replication follows a specific model that is very different from the replication model used for intersite replication. With intrasite replication, the focus is on ensuring that changes are rapidly distributed. Intrasite replication traffic is not compressed, and replication is designed so that changes are replicated almost immediately after a change has been made. The main component ...
