Shibboleth SP clustering using shared database

Our application is mainly stateless and the only stateful part we use RP to maintain stickiness, I would consider the application is clustered. But our application does rely on SP for the authenticated user id (REMOTE_USER) and session management, these are the other reasons we want to cluster SP.

If the application isn't clustered it doesn't matter and if it is it almost certainly doesn't need the SP session, so there is no point in clustering it.
