Load balanced / resilient KM iMFP service

Has anyone attempted to load balance or provide redundancy to the Pharos KM iMFP service?


We will be deploying over 300 KM MFD's and don't want to have all of them hosted on a single server (in terms of the KM service communicating with the MFD rather that the print queues themselves).


We can split them across multiple servers each one running the KM iMFP service but we were hoping to have a solution that allowed a server to fail without half the MFD fleet going down. I guess clustering might be an option but that adds to the number of servers required so I wondered whether a load balanced solution might work. Has anyone tried this type of architecture?


Any thoughts gratefully received.
