Why do you need auto-scaling servers for video conferencing?

  • save cost when there is no use for additional servers
  • scale up and down servers to cater to video conferencing user demands

What is the role of the Jitsi Meet, JVB & Jibri servers?

  • Provides the front end for the video conferencing system
  • Manages the video & audio conferencing data transfer between conference participants.
  • Jibri servers allow recording of Jitsi meetings (this is not offered on all scripts)

Why do we set up Jitsi servers as shards

  • Shards are logical structures of servers that are deployed within a particular ISP infrastructure service providers region and availability zone
  • They contain as necessary, HA Proxy, Jitsi Meet, JVB, (optionally) Jibri servers.
  • Within each shard, there may be auto-scaling JVB and (optionally) Jibri servers to support a given number of concurrent users
  • The scripts may setup multiple shards as necessary to cater to a given number of maximum concurrent users
