Clustering using hardware load balancer

Hello,

 

I would like to build out a large Openfire user base pushing potentially 1m users in the future. I have resources and a budget to make this happen, but am not satisfied with the current Oracle software clustering solution for Openfire.

 

As such, I would like to circumvent the entire Oracle Coherence software process and use just a hardware load balancer with active intelligence capability to distribute load to stand-alone Openfire instances connecting back to a similar MySQL database (clusted as master/slave).

 

Questions

- has anyone tried to do this yet?

  - if so, is there anything special to configure?

  - if not, what issues might I have with this configuration?

 

thank you!

Pete
