Curious, I recently tried (again) to share a database folder on my private network, so that I could open it from AB installed on a separate machine. While I seemed to get the symbol list, the price data was not accessible.
With 10GBe Ethernet and higher Infiniband options, which can saturate a remote hard drive's bandwidth, any reason this shouldn't or can't work in the future? Or maybe a AB data broadcast or pass-through server feature (Node.js)? Would be kind of cool if a datafeed and database could be shared or at least read-only by other AB instances in a network fabric. Just thinking hehehehe.
