PRTG External Database



Hi all, I'm just about to build our PRTG infrastructure and want to ensure that I build it to be as "performant" as possible. So my question is...

Will the Core server perform better if the PRTG database is hosted on a separate server? As this will effect the HA side of things, I was thinking of using Veeam to replicate the PRTG core server and database to our DR site ona frequent basis.

Would that be supported by you guys?

FYI, our ESX hosts and storage are extremely high spec with using SSD cache on the core server/Db would hopefully add some performance enhancements.
