Adobe Connect server pools/clusters and hardware-based load-balancing devices with SSL acceleration

The most robust means of implementing secure socket layer (SSL) with Adobe Connect servers is through a hardware-based SSL accelerator and similarly, the most robust means of clustering Connect servers is with a hardware-based load-balancing device (HLD). Since all enterprise-class HLDs are also SSL accelerators (any that are not both are either legacy or low-end by definition), this example-based article offers a best-practice configuration of a Connect Server pool or cluster running Connect Meetings, Adobe Presenter on-demand content, Adobe Connect Training, Curriculum and Virtual Classrooms securely behind a high-end, application-aware HLD and SSL acceleration device such as F5 BIG-IP LTM. This article does not exhaust the possible configurations, but offers a general working example.
