Access PuppetDB Over a WAN

Hi all,

Is it recommended to access PuppetDB over a WAN? By that I mean we have two sites that each have 2 x Puppet Masters and about 280 agents per site. All agents check-in to the site specific Puppet Masters. We're thinking about introducing PuppetDB in one of the sites in an attempt to make it more of a single solution. I know that technically having multiple Puppet Masters access a single PuppetDB instance is possible however, our DBA's are frowning upon the idea suggesting that DB access over a WAN would introduce a whole host of performance concerns and issues which I tend to agree with in principle. If this is generally not recommended, then what would be the best approach to effectively merge (for a better word) both sites with PuppetDB?
