The location of Domino and other servers within the Riverbend Coffee and Tea Company environment can affect the way applications operate. If the application will reside on a server located in the demilitarized zone (DMZ), then it may have different and restricted access to some of the internal servers. If the application resides on a server located inside the intranet, then that can mean it has greater access to other internal servers for purposes of external database lookups and data retrieval.
In addition, there may be proxy servers between the application and users of that application, which can impact caching and other factors that can affect how we build a particular application.
When designing and creating applications, always keep in mind where the application will reside within the Riverbend Coffee and Tea Company environment.
