The most important thing in programming is to make sure that your session variables are all serialization-friendly. If the cluster needs to transfer a session to a different server, only the data that can be serialized will make the trip. You don't want holes in you sessions!

It's not too hard to set up a cluster, but I'm going to have to refer you to the documentation.

Also, just a heads up that Amazon EC2 does not support Multicast. So you may need to decide if you want to support/create/use a database or file system for storing sessions. The following page has some more examples (other than the official docs):
