Which clustering patterns does Sterling B2B Integrator support?
Sterling B2B Integrator supports active/active clusters, active/passive clusters, and hybrid configurations.
- Active/active clusters, with all nodes processing work at all times (preferred).
- Active/passive clusters, with a second application/hardware node configured exactly like the first, using either automated or manual techniques to start the second application instance in the event that the first fails.
- Hybrid configurations in which an active/active cluster is backed up by a passive node that can replace either of the active nodes in the event of hardware failure.
Sterling B2B Integrator also supports the dynamic addition of nodes to the cluster (although the installation of such nodes on a running cluster has several additional steps).
