[Freeswitch-users] Questions on Building an application for FreeSWITCH

What would the advantage of an N to N architecture be though? An ESL server
controlling several FS instances has a view of everything that is going on.
All calls/conferences etc. A real advantage. That is lost when two ESL
servers are run in parallel. State information could be in a DB cluster -
but why not have the in-process app access this directly, cutting out the
middle man?

How does using ESL make it more scalable and more available with fewer
components? I am sure you are correct - I just don't see it.
