When installing replicated Horizon Connection Server instances, you must usually configure the instances in the same physical location and connect them over a high-performance LAN. Connection Server instances must be located on the same L2 network and broadcast domain.

Important: To use a group of replicated Connection Server instances across a WAN, MAN (metropolitan area network), or other non-LAN, in scenarios where a VMware Horizon 8 deployment needs to span data centers, you must use the Cloud Pod Architecture feature. For more information, see the Cloud Pod Architecture in Horizon 8 document.
