IBM Sterling Data Exchange Connect: Network, learn, and share with experts in Sterling Data Exchange Join / Log in
I have a small doubt about whether Sterling Secure Proxy is clustered or not. If it clustered, could we configure it both in an active-active and an active-passive setup.
Please suggest an appropriate IBM document for clustering of SSP (Sterling Secure Proxy).
We appreciate your support
You can achieve HA by installing multiple SSP Engines and configure a criss-cross cluster with SFG nodes.
Example HA set up is to have -
2-node SFG Cluster (all active)
2 SSP Engines (all active)
1 SSP CM (active), and you can have an additional SSP-CM for back up.
For a 2 * 2 criss-cross cluster (2 SSP Engines, and 2 SFG nodes), you will need 4 SSP Perimeter Servers.
Hope that helps.
Hi INDUBHARATHI Routhu,
Thanks for your reply, Is the installation of 4 Perimeter Server required or optional?
SSP PS serves the same purpose as B2Bi PS.
Without SSP-PS, you will need to open the inbound holes for all your server adapter listening ports at the firewall between DMZ and your Trusted Zone. Hence recommend to include SSP-PS when you use SSP.
I will try to look for the documentation that can help you understand further and share here.
