Creating a JRun/CF cluster and using hardware load balancing
Posted on 2004-08-10
I am creating a hosting environment that will consist of a Hardware load balancer (CISCO CSS), 2 Windows 2003 Server Machines running IIS6 and JRun/Coldfusion. Will will also have a remote storage machine (NAS) to hold all the client data and store the websites.
What I need to know is - if I want to use session replication across the two server machines, am I able to create a JRun cluster across the two so if one fails the other will maintain the session state? Or does this conflict with how the CSS with balance the load. i.e. will the CSS direct me to one machine only to have the JRun/CFusion decide which server in the cluster to use?
Im a little confused as to how JRun should be setup when using a hardware load balancer.
