I have a general question regarding Sharepoint setup. Currently, my company's setup is as follows:

  1. Active Directory domain controller
  2. SQL Server
  3. Sharepoint 2010 server
  4. Secondary AD Domain controller

These four are in four separate virtual machines all running Windows Server 2008R2.

Servers 1-3, are in the US, while server 4 is in Taiwan

I did not do the initial setup , but as our company grows, there is a need to create a mirror site where users in Taiwan will be able to locally read/write data and it will be synced to the US site, and vice versa.

What is the best way to achieve this? Should I setup a separate SQL server / Sharepoint server in Taiwan, and clone the setup, including the database? How will these by synced?

Any help greatly appreciated!
