I am designing a solution for our client which have the following 'Areas'
- My Sites
- Projects (MS project server)
I see the best approach is creating a Web Application (WA) for teams/committees each with their own site collection, a WA for My Sites, a WA for Projects and a WA for Apps.
The issue is Microsoft states conflicting best practices. One tech net article describes the best approach only have one WA per Farm including My Sites. Another states that My Sites should always have its own WA due to performance.
Can someone please validate my approach of having a separate WA for My Sites or at least give me a reason why I should go down a different path e.g. one share WA with a Site Collection for My Sites
If you are interested the two conflicting articles are http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263267.aspx - One shared Web App http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262500.aspx - My Sites its own Web App
