MeetingPlace 7 Questions

Unanswered Question

Posted this under another forum topic but it looks like this one has a little more MP action.


Couple of questions about MeetingPlace 7.


-What is the best way to provide fault tolerance to the MP web servers? Can you front end with a CSS/ACE or is it best to just have multiple DNS 'A' records for all of your web servers.


-If you enable SSL on the web server itself it significantly decreases the capacity of the server. Is it possible to offload the SSL duties to a CSS/ACE? If so, how have you configured this?


-What is the purpose of the two IP addresses required for each web server? In 'Home | Administration | Web Server' it says that one is for 'Home Page' and one is for 'Web Conferencing' but you can go to either address/hostname and you get to the web interface. Any insight?


Thanks in advance.

Number of MeetingPlace Web servers:


- depends on the load, and whether external attendance (outside your organisation) is required. For enterprises you will use a minimum of 1 internal, 1 external server.

- Database is dependant whether you design for fault tolerance, and load related. On a MP Web server is okay, as long as you know the risks involved.

I have read every piece of published and unpublished docuementation regarding MP7. None of it really answers the questsions I asked. I understand the design of scalability for MP7. 500 users per web server if it is non-SSL. You should have the internal and external databases off-box to provide scalability....I get that.


Any other answers would be very helpful!


Thanks in advance,


Jason
