Clustering BI4.2SP3 Environments

Hello,

I need you expertise in regards to clustering my BO servers. I am planning to have 2 BO server that contains App server and BI 4.2 SP3 as shows in the pic below. The question I have do I need 2 IIS server to cluster? What is good practice? Open for all comments.

I have using the following:

  1. Windows Server 2012
  2. IIS
  3. Tomcat (out of the box)
  4. BI 4.2 SP3
  5. Oracle database

Thanks in adv.

    Hi Denis and Joe,

    IIS does IP binding and links to certs and domain network.

    So the question is since it redirecting the traffic should have cluster? or have one IIS and maybe I can have fail over?

    Thanks in adv.

    • Thanks for your time Denis,

      We do not have Apache as approved software to use. This is in existing install and to your point it is used for redirect.

      So, IIS cluster is not necessary... that leave us with one IIS server 2 bo/tomcat server.

      Should I have IIS 2nd server for fail over?

      Thanks,

      Waleed

    If you're thinking of using IIS for a split web/app deployment, or as a load balancer, then you might want to use Apache instead. It works well with Tomcat and is supported by wdeploy for split deployments.

    There are couple of questions I need to ask before a proper answer can be made:

    - why do you need IIS ?

    - Have you seen BI Platform Pattern books ?
