How big IAP clusters are out there?

Hi!

 

What´s the biggest cluster of IAPs you´re rocking and are they experiencing any issues? 

 

I´ve been recommended that if going for a very big cluster you should make sure to include one or two IAP225 or similar powerful AP to handle the master role. Otherwise there´s no limit on the clusters that I know of, except for the IAP-92/93´s that can only be 16 in a cluster.

I've deployed on with about 95 APs, of which 10 or so were monitors.  It has over 1000 users on it during the day.

 

Apart from some specific code issues, it is going fine.

I've got a cluster of 113 IAP-103s running just fine. 0 AM's
Very low usage though.
Using a more powerful AP as the VC is definitely beneficial but what you can also do is dedicate one AP in the cluster (if all the same models) that has very low usage to be the master.

Re: How big IAP clusters are out there?

Thanx guys for the input! Are you mixing models in the big clusters? Will mixing several different product families affect scalability?
