One of THE best new features in WebSphere Commerce Feature Pack (FEP) 7

In Feature Pack 7, the advanced configuration allows you to federate and cluster WebSphere Commerce search. This means you can now scale your servers more inline with your sites demand – separating transactional operations and search operations independently. 

Marco Fabbri outlined this in an excellent blog post back in June this year. 

As shown on the pictures I got from IBM Knowledge Center it’s possible to create two different clusters, one for transactional and the other dedicated to no transactional traffic and using CBR (Content Based Routing) functions of a dispatcher to distribute REST calls to the different servers depending on their content (or better on his URL pattern).
