General J2EE: .NET vs J2EE in aspect of Horizontal Scaling

Can anybody outline in a manner understandable for J2EE specialist, how cluster-related features are organized in .NET ?
Does it support horizontal scaling at all in terms of HTTP-session replication, state synchronization for components holding user-conversation (SFSB analogs) and synchronization of entity instances cache (Entity EJB caching) contents between cluster nodes?
thanks a lot,
For the most part, .NET horizontal scale requires stateless applications.
For J2EE, some application servers (e.g. WebLogic, but others too) support horizontal scale with stateful applications using HTTP sessions and Stateful Session EJBs.
Also, with either J2EE or .NET, you can cluster and share state across the cluster using Tangosol Coherence.
