Running in a load balanced environment.

I have been looking at your control and it seems very nice.

I was wondering if there has been any testing of the upload process on a load balanced system.  Is there any guarantee that the HttpHandler will always upload chunks of files to the same node in a balanced system?

Good question. There's no guarantee that Silverlight will always call the HttpHandler on the same server when there's a load balancer in between. It also depends on the load balancer system of course.

A solution I can think of is to let the HttpHandler write the data to a single storage server. So if both (or more) servers all write to the same file storage, it doesn't matter which HttpHandler on which server gets called.

If you have any other ideas, I'd like to hear them.

Thanks for the quick reply.
