Hello Marc,

Thank you for your answer.

About multiple DCs in one domain, Do you have any documentation or a 
link that could explain us how to make this type of architecture ?

As I told you, the final aim is to have more than 100 000 users in one 
domain, is this a mistake to use a single master DC ?

If we can't do this, is there a special feature to develop to make this 
infrastructure work?
LINAGORA can support this development (a part or the totality of it, 
with the agreement of the community) if necessary.
