SilverStripe looks like a great CMS. I would like to try it out, but I don't see anything saying it runs okay in a web farm. I currently have 2 Windows 2003 IIS6 machines with a third party file synchronization tool. For another other CMS we are currently running, I simply monitor the root folder and merge changes between servers and this works okay.

Before I go through the process of installing SilverStripe, will the same technique work for that? Also, I will be using a SQL Server back end.

I cannot think of a reason it wouldn't work - on unix it works fine using symlinks, so if you are saying it has a complete copy of the files that should be fine. I think things like the cache and assest need to be excluded from your sync process - but other than that I think it will be fine. After all....
