This guide shows how to easily get a complex Cyclos cluster with master-slave database replication, scalability, and High Availability ensuring redundancy enabled within Cloudjiffy PaaS.  This installation process is fully automated.

Due to high availability, it prevents performance troubles and failed transaction troubles that can affect your business. It provides high redundancy because the application is extended across a number of servers. It ensures that if one server fails, the users from that node will be automatically switched to the other instance of this Tomcat cluster. Due to the replication, the other instance already has all the sessions of the failed node, so end-users never notice any change. In addition, the PostgreSQL database master-slave replication improves the performance and the failover capabilities of the solution.
