I already read some of the articles from the links you provided, but answer
is still not straight forward. The relevant part states that "The new
dialog clustering support in OpenSIPS 2.4 is a complete one as it not only
takes care of dialog replication/sharing, but also of dialog handling in
terms of properly triggering dialog-specific actions."
But there is no information on how or "if" the module will  do call
representing / re-homing or restoring.


Hi Konrad!

Clustering OpenSIPS is some mix of:
- N OpenSIPS nodes
- N RTPEngine instances (I think you can use one, standalone,
on a different host than OpenSIPSes)
- at least 1 Redis, in case of >=2 RTPEngines, to share
RTP sessions
- some VRRP realisation, e.g. Keepalived or Pacemaker/Corosync.

OpenSIPSes share cluster-related critical data through BIN interface [1],
along with cluster-related options in some modules like usrloc [2],
dialog [3], tm [4]. Please find 'cluster' word on the documentation pages,
I hope this will give you answers on your questions.

[3] https://opensips.org/html/docs/modules/2.4.x/dialog.html
[4] https://opensips.org/html/docs/modules/2.4.x/tm.html

Another kind of clustering is for horizontal scaling,
not redundancy/high-availability.
A good example is registrar server
