Servoy Cluster allows multiple Servoy Application Servers instances to be clustered together and act as 1 virtual Servoy Application Server.
Clustered Servoy Application Servers share the same Servoy Repository. This means that all Servoy Application Servers in the cluster share the same version of the solutions available. Servoy Cluster makes all Servoy Application Servers in the cluster remain in sync when importing (a new version of) a solution. Servoy's Databroadcasting mechanism also operates throughout the entire cluster.
Servoy Cluster is based on Terracotta , the world's most powerful and widely-adopted open source platform for Java scalability and availability.
