AX 2012 Load Balancing Cluster & Services

My fellow Daxers,

We have 3 AOS configured in a cluster. None of the servers are load balancers, so they all share the job of load balancing as well as processing business logic ( per technet.microsoft.com/…/dd362041.aspx )

We also have a heavy integration with several custom and 3rd party applications. These utilize AIF web services, and we’ve noticed a drastic jump in the response times on these service calls.

I assumed that load balancing would also distribute service calls, but it appears that is not correct ( technet.microsoft.com/…/hh397322.aspx )

How are you all implementing load balancing with services? Do you dedicated an AOS to handle service integration calls, and let the rest in your clusters handle rich client sessions?

Thanks,
S

I take it most are not in to the services load balancing yet :slight_smile: We aren’t either, so I’ll try and be a trend setter and let you know how it goes.
