    Hi All,

     

    We are planning to establish new SSO infrastructure in AWS cloud based EC2 instance (mainly Linux and windows server combination) and looking for best practices for (Dynamically Scalable Environment) autoscaling and load balancing of the CA SPS, policy server, and policy stores.

     

    Mainly our focus is on best settings for ELB (Elastic Load Balancing) across the CA SPS servers.

     

    Please let me know any documentation or forum links you have which help us for best practices in SSO infrastucture.

    Here is published documentation regrading performance tuning related to CA SSO. It has a range of ideas for several different components.

    Performance Tuning Introduced - CA Single Sign-On - 12.52 SP1 - CA Technologies Documentation 

    and

    Configure Agent to Policy Server Communication Using a Hardware Load Balancer - CA Single Sign-On - 12.52 SP1 - CA Techn… 

     

    Keep in mind, performance tuning and load balancing is a wide topic, can be complex,  no one can cover it for all, particularly when ELB (Elastic Load Balancing) is not a CA product.

    This can usually involve CA services on a special case by case basis.
