Design issue

Hi everyone,
We’re in process of upgrading webMethods from 6.5 to 8.0.1.
In our 6.5 environment we just use IS in cluster (2 servers), Broker and TN in cluster (1 transaction type with 5 partners). We’re planning to have the same things for version 8.0.1. Also we’re planning the create users account for our analyst to handle TN transactions via MWS.

In webmethods 8, I would like to understand how clustering TN via MWS would work, since a clustered TN uses a shared Database and also a clustered MWS would also uses a shared DB
My questions are:

1-Do we have to setup MWS in Cluster?

2-What would be the best configuration using MWS for that scenario:«IS in cluster (2 servers), Broker and TN in cluster (1 transaction type with 5 partners)».

Please advice.

Thanks lot in advance

1-Do we have to setup MWS in Cluster?

– Single instance of MWS can do the job

2-What would be the best configuration using MWS for that scenario:«IS in cluster (2 servers), Broker and TN in cluster (1 transaction type with 5 partners)».

– Whether to use cluster or not is entirely a arch. design decision based on your requirements. It will be difficult to comment on it. I would suggest to engage SAG to help you on this.
