Clustered Blog Hosting Durable Link to this BLOG
Blogging in a Clustered Environment

One of the sites using SimplyBlog in a clustered environment has a problem. The pictures they upload do not get deployed to all the servers in their cluster (the blog entries are no problem, since they originate from a database). Other than configuring the different servers with FTP, does anyone have an idea how to do this in a Microsoft's Load-balanced (WLBS) environment?

Some Ideas:

  • Perform a POST to each of the servers in the cluster (somebody then has to keep a track of which server is in, and which is out of the cluster)
  • Write a Sync service (like the Unix's rsync)
  • Store pictures in the database

I don't like any one them. There's gotta be an easier way, like xcopy of something that can be called via Active Server Pages. Please send your tips to Contact Kamats. Thank you!

Deepak suggests uploading the image to a nonLB server, and then using FSO to deploy to all LB Servers.


  • The 16th Annual 2003 Purandara Dasa and Thyagaraja Music festival will be held SSVT Auditorium in Lanham, Maryland on April 25-27th 2003.
  • The Fifth North American Konkani Convention will be held in Southern Californa on 4th of July weekend in 2004.
