Load Balancing, Scalability and Failover with ColdFusion
"Load Balancing, Scalability and Failover with ColdFusion
We will discuss and demonstrate how to design a scalable, high performing ColdFusion environment with a failover plan to keep your users seamlessly running even when a server goes offline.
We will look at using the built-in ColdFusion clustering features using local and remote peers along with setting up local and distributed web servers for IIS and Apache. We will talk about and demonstrate options with implementing a session replication strategy by using the client scope, distributed EHCache, and best practices with using in memory replication.
In addition we will look at some ColdFusion tuning tips which for the best performance. We will walk thru some must have ColdFusion server alerts and notifications as well.
Once we have our completed environment ready we will perform some load testing and demonstrate and monitor the seamless failover by taking one server offline and have the others cluster peers pick up the traffic without losing any session information."
