I would like to build out a large Openfire user base pushing potentially 1m users in the future. I have resources and a budget to make this happen, but am not satisfied with the current Oracle software clustering solution for Openfire.
As such, I would like to circumvent the entire Oracle Coherence software process and use just a hardware load balancer with active intelligence capability to distribute load to stand-alone Openfire instances connecting back to a similar MySQL database (clusted as master/slave).
has anyone tried to do this yet?
if so, is there anything special to configure?
if not, what issues might I have with this configuration?
