I have few doubts regarding Coldfusion clustering.
Is there any benefits of Creating multiple instances of a single ColdFusion server, Create a cluster by adding those instances and host the application on the cluster? Is there any performace benefits over directly use the default cfusion instance?
Lets say I have two machines each with CF enterprise edition installed. Now for load balancing there are two options, i. Use ColdFusion clustering, create a cluster by adding instances from the two servers(Using Register Remote Instances option), and host the application. ii. Use a separate hardware load balancer to distribute the traffic. Which option is good to use?
I am new to Coldfusion clustering and load balancing please help.
