Hi,
I have run Gentoo Linux for several years and moved to CentOS and DirectAdmin Control Panel.

I have one client that needs redundancy with their dedicated server. I have looked over some clustered configurations with Linux and ran across Redhat cluster manager.

Can someone please give me some advice for the best redundant server solution? This is critical so any hardware failures will not take the site down so orders keep coming in etc.

Thanks,
RD

RD:

See [webmasterworld.com...] - I went into some level of detail there on a redundant configuration that will withstand failure of one or more host(s).

Depending on how *critical* critical is - It would probably be best to explore commercial solutions. The type of configuration I describe does not do any geolocation based optimizations and is fairly manual in implementation.
