    UNC repositories vs SuperAgents

    wyrm

      Currently, I have 6 UNC distributed repositories in my environment and 1 FTP repository.  We don’t have enough repositories in our environment and need to expand.

       

      For a couple of lower-bandwidth sites, I’m planning on using SuperAgents.

       

      Since SuperAgents save bandwidth, would it be advantageous to convert all of my UNC repositories to SuperAgents, regardless of their WAN bandwidth?  Are there any benefits to continue using UNC instead of SuperAgents?

       

      In terms of performance, if a SuperAgent’s repository is up-to-date, is it any slower for a computer to download updates/patches from a SuperAgent, rather than UNC, http or FTP?

       

      Any advice would be appreciated!
