Sametime Meetings

High availability is supported for the front end web traffic to the Kubernetes cluster. You can deploy multiple web front-ends on different physical/virtual nodes pointing to the same back end in order to both distribute load and survive a node outage.

Is Kubernetes required for High availability?

High availability is not supported for active meetings. If a server hosting a meeting goes down, users in meetings on that server are briefly interrupted. A re-connection timer built into the client causes clients to quickly re-connect and be distributed to another available node. In some circumstances, a server going down causes a client to disconnect from a meeting. Users can quickly re-connect to the meeting from their recent meetings list and join again on an available server momentarily.
