We are currently operating a geo replication topology, with a remote distributor in the same geographical location as the publisher and a pull subscription over the internet from the subscriber. All replication is of the transactional replication type.
We are looking to move the remote distributor to the same geographical location as the subscriber. I am interested if anyone else has done this and what kind of performance issues they have seen.
This is a very bad idea. Not only will it add to replication latency but you are adding another point of failure to your topology. Should the subscriber go offline or there be an extended network outage like there would be with a hurricane, your log will
get huge on your publisher.
