We’ve been testing Enkompass since its first trial version and we’ve recently began testing on our new Windows VPS packages. The idea was to test Enkompass as a distributed system at a much lower cost than running on a dedicated server cluster. We’ll try and release some benchmarks in the future but for now we wanted to show how to setup a cost effective virtualized Enkompass cluster.
In our test environment we used three of our HostDime Xen based WVPS.2 packages. One server is running active directory which handles DNS and users , another is running IIS and the Enkompass control panel storing all domain content. Our last server is running MSSQL, MYSQL and the mail server, Mail Enable.
