An openfire cluster

Researching what it’s going to take to convert a test Openfire instance into a 2 node cluster. Yeah, scary.

Step by step instructions from Vincent Paca (a guy who knows what he’s doing) for how to get this going on the Amazon cloud, Openfire+Hazelcast on Amazon EC2.

The active ingredients are:

1. A common database.

2. A pair of Openfire servers.

3. The Hazelcast Plugin for Openfire. This last is based on the open source Hazelcast Community Edition code base.
