Clustering Adobe Connect Servers with Microsoft Network Load Balancing

Many software-based server load-balancing and fail-over options have prematurely reached the end of the product life cycle. The market prediction that effectively swept software-based options off the enterprise landscape was that the price of superior hardware-based solutions would decrease enough to make the software options superfluous. The problem with this prediction is obvious to anyone who has tried to cluster a small pool of application servers on a tight budget: the price of the hardware options that are worth having have not dropped enough to fill the niche occupied by software clustering applications….

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.
