We run everything in a web farm / load balanced environment. I've been reading around and this is what I understand about Sitefinity and how it works in that enviroment.
1. We need to set the cache to be stored in the DB
2. Any and all images, attachements (like PDF's ect) added by our writers end up in the database
3. There are other files like user controls that can be uploaded via the interface that are not added to the database so would need to be sync'ed some how.
Do you have a list of file types not stored in the DB that can be added to the website without a formal deployment?
Is it possible to stop all uploading of such files and restrict those files to a normal deployment cycle?
