Scenario 2 - Load Balancing

Quantity:

Approx. 500 thin clients

Circumstances

Every morning, all thin clients are switched on automatically by UMS WakeUp or Power Switch. They boot simultaneously.

Recommended Configuration

2 UMS servers + 2 load balancers on separate devices.

Motivation

All thin clients request their settings from the UMS server within a few seconds. One UMS server is not sufficient to process 500 requests within an acceptable time period (< 1 minute).

Load Balancing with two UMS servers and two load balancers will diminish latency during the single client boot process and ensure the transfer of the configuration.
