    I'm trying to understand more the Pro's and Con's for having an Addon Domain vs Separate domain.

    Here's my use for it. Site1.com holds all the files, Site2.com holds all the video and images. When it comes time to add a second server (end of this year) I could move Site2.com to a second server and nfs mount it. Thats of the site is separate. PROBLEM: separate site means permission problems, when write code ie.php you can unlink / move files without permission which means setting up special groups.

    Addon domain doesn't have the permission problem from what I can see, since the domain gets the group access of the Mainsite. so no extra configuration required. now the problem would be how do I get that addon domain to a second server to offload some of the resources.

    I'm just planning for the future.

    I know some folks have used iSCSI for networked storage to get around many of these issues. We don't officially support iSCSI at this time, but many have used it with great success.
