iCloud Caching Storage Requirements for Clustered Servers

New Contributor III

I currently run 1 caching server for updates per site, however I now have a requirement to support shared iPad which requires iCloud caching for good performance. I'll be looking at ~130 iPads on shared iPad at my biggest location.

When running multiple peered caching servers, is the storage effectively pooled for them or will I need to ensure I have enough storage to service the entire site on each server?

You will need storage on each server... When peered, one server asks the other if it has it, and if so it serves it from the second server.

We decided against shared iPads so I can't comment on whether the load will be high enough to actually need another server.
