CASO Environment Configuration - BE 15

I have been tasked with setting up a new BE 15 environment, we have been running 2014 for about 6 months on a single server with dedicated storage on the servers. I have been given the go-ahead to purchase 2 additional servers to place a server two of our data-centers and a new DR site we are bringing online. All sites are connected via 100Mb link. I would like to leverage CASO to manage it all but also would like the data replicated between the 3 sites. What would be the best real world configuration to configure this?

For the data replication, you

For the data replication, you would need the dedup option for each of the media servers participating in the replication. This is in addition to the CASO option. The feature that you will be using is called optimized duplication

Odd, the "settings" button

Odd, the "settings" button doesn't appear on my shared deduplication storage details list.

...where are your catalogs

...where are your catalogs located? On the MMS, or on the CASO?

Thanks!

On the CASO, because I wasn't

On the CASO, because I wasn't given an option to share them like the one in the picture, I had to configure it when I installed the media server.
