App clustering - Horizontal Scaling

By kannan.sambath ·
My application is NOT a web-based application and is currently running on AIX platform. Currently the server is loaded with (i) application database (Oracle 8.x ) , (ii) service providers and (iii) MQ managers.

Recently the number of users who login to my server has increased. This has led to the increase in the (i) listeners process ( as they directly connect from workstation to server using my application ) (ii) increase in the system load as the service providers receive more requests to be serviced.

I do not want to scale my server vertically and I would like to resolve this problem by doing 'Horizontal Scaling'. ie., keeping the database in the AIX server, moving the service provides to the LINUX boxes which will connect to the server for the database and MQ access ?

Could u pls review my proposal and suggest a better one.
