At my organization we have a single-server ArcGIS Server deployment right now.


By the end of October it will change to a multi-server deployment with the Web Adaptor on its own server and two other machines running arcgis-10.5 Server. I am excited


The question from the IT department is this: 

"regarding multiple gis servers, would they all share the same soc’s or would they be split?"


I believe this is asked because we have over 30 map services, and we'd like to know how they will be spread between multiple servers. Would every ArcGIS server host every map service, or just a subset? Please explain for me so I can answer the IT staff.
