Can I cluster both Server and Publisher using the same Hardware?

I'm currently administering a simple Enterprise environment, but we are looking at moving to a more redundant clustered environment.

Is it possible to cluster the QVS on box A & B, cluster Publisher on box B & C, and have a Quality Assurance QVS run on box C if the documents are stored on a NAS ? 

We are trying to minimize on cost, while still have some level of redundancy.

Any suggestions would be appreciated,

B

Yes, you can do that. Users might experience different performance responses when accessing A or B depending if task are running on B.

Re: Can I cluster both Server and Publisher using the same Hardware?

Is there a way to configure throughput for Publisher on B & C, so C is by default 70% and B 30%?  And only increase publisher activity on B, if C is experiencing RAM or CPU issues.

Also, how many licenses would be necessary to implement this hardware configuration using version 11?  I currently have 4 QVS Enterprise licenses and 1 Publisher license.  Would I need anything different?

Thanks in advance,

B

No, you cannot predefine how tasks will be distributed between services but a formula will be used to use resources evenly.

You need another Publisher license, with XS_SERVICES;2 to be able to run them in cluster.
