MQ Set Up - Clustering

MQ Set Up - Clustering

MQ Set Up - Clustering

Very little experience with MQ and on very tight budget!

New project.

Quote Engine on Windows 2003 server. AS400 Database on other server.
Quote Engine to make requests to AS400 for data which is then returned.
AS400 to make requests to Quote Engine for data which is then returned.

Want High Availablity.

As some requests will be coming from the internet we want to have more than one QM on the AS400 in case one QM goes down, we don't want internet users left hanging so we want second QM to kick in. I'd imagine we are looking at clustering on the AS400.

On the Windows 2003 server we will have a similar set up. Do we have two clusters? One on each server. Or are the four QM in the one cluster?

If the QM on both servers are not in the one cluster we would have to use one Gateway MQ to connect into the clusters. However if this Gateway QM goes down all connections are lost?

What are our options? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
