Openfire 3.4 Clustering Beta Program

Version 12

    We need your feedback on the Openfire Enterprise 3.4.0 Beta with Clustering!

     

    Why We Need Your Help

    A major milestone in Openfire scalability and redundancy has arrived (in beta), and you have the chance to contribute to its success and get nice benefits in return. Clustering in Openfire Enterprise was engineered to support a larger number of users on a single domain by utilizing several servers working together to handle the load. The other major benefit of clustering is redundancy so that when more than one server handling the load it is possible for one of the servers to fail while keeping the service operational.

     

    Many portions of the Openfire server needed to be rewritten for this release. Therefore, it is very important that you help us test the server before we release the final version!
