Setting up Servoy Cluster involves the following steps:
- Installation of multiple Servoy Application, this means deploying the same WAR file on multiply nodes/tomcats.
To create a cluster of Servoy Application Servers, multiple Servoy Application Servers are required. The installation procedure for the individual Servoy Application Server instances is identical to the procedure for Servoy Application Servers that are not part of a Servoy Cluster.
All Servoy Application Servers within a Servoy Cluster have to run the same version of Servoy, but can run on different platforms, if required.
To make Servoy Application Server instances work with Servoy Cluster a couple of configuration steps are required. Those will be discussed in step 2.
Note that all Servoy Application Server instances that will be part of a Servoy Cluster need to connect to 1 set of databases. Therefore, it is not efficient to install the bundled PostgreSQL database engine (when using the bundled PostgreSQL as database engine) with each instance of the Servoy Application Server.
- Configuration of each Servoy Application Servers to work with Servoy Cluster:
Servoy Cluster license
Before installing Servoy Cluster make sure to obtain a Servoy Cluster license from Servoy.
Use the same versions of Terracotta, Servoy and Java inside a cluster.
