Cyclos is online banking software (used by more than 1500 payment systems worldwide) for microfinance institutions, local banks and complementary currency systems like LETS, TD4W Credits, Barter networks and time banks. It is easy to use and manage, and its structure lets you create a dedicated payment system via smooth configurantiion changes.

Check out how to install Cyclos cluster with replicated master-slave database - in a single click away at Cloudlets Australia hosting platform.

Due to the enabled High Availability your Cyclos environment will be able to cope with failed transactions and other performance issues. And application extension across a number of servers ensures redundancy: if one server fails, the users from that node will be automatically switched to the other instance of the cluster. Due to the replication, the other instance has all the sessions of the failed node. The PostgreSQL database master-slave replication improves the performance and the failover capabilities.

Let's sign in (or register - it is free. Moreover you have 14 days trial without credit card details) to Cloudlets Australia account

Now let's restart application server nodes (you can choose whether it'll be sequential (all together restart of all Tomcat nodes) or simultaneous (one by one with delay) restart).

Refresh the Cyclos application web page (or click Open in Browser button) to get the application servers re-read configuration and start running in High-Availability mode.

That's all.
