GlassFish Cluster Topology

Due to the native GlassFish clustering architecture, its topology includes three node groups:

Load Balancer - intended to process all incoming requests, sent to the cluster, and distribute them between worker nodes
Worker Node - application server to handle the required app and web services
Domain Administration Server (DAS) - management instance which performs centralized control of the cluster nodes and configure communication between them via SSH
