InfoLibrarian Metadata Appliance™ Scalability
With the InfoLibrarian Metadata Appliance™, scalability and increased computing power can be accomplished by adding appliances. The key characteristic of the InfoLibrarian™ scalable solution is that increased load requires only additional hardware, rather than extensive modification of the application.
The scalability of InfoLibrarian™ allows users to: expand performance by adding metadata appliances to clusters as needed. Protect existing hardware investments and develop virtually unrestricted scalability options.
Stacking the Metadata Appliance
InfoLibrarian™ is a highly componentized application, significant performance scalability can be easily and cost effectively achieved by dedicating multiple appliances to various roles. Under this scenario little or no configuration is required, allowing you to simply add as you grow.
Metadata Appliance Load Balancing Technology
InfoLibrarian’s™ load balancing allows a cluster of up to 32 individual metadata appliances to appear as a single metadata appliance. This advantage automatically distributes load among available appliances. Additionally,
there is no single point of performance failure. If one metadata appliance fails, the remaining appliances pick up the additional load. This results in reduced downtime (No downtime for maintenance), and higher fault tolerance,
in addition to the overall performance gain.
