6.3. Virtuoso Cluster Operation


This chapter describes setting up and operating Virtuoso on a cluster of computers. The section on Virtuoso cluster programming documents the SQL extensions specific to cluster application development.

These sections apply to Virtuoso as of version 6.0.

Clustering primarily offers greatly increased scalability for large databases without requiring application changes. The database is divided over a number of servers, of which all provide transparent access to the same data.
