I cannot remember if I posted this before - been having wierd dreams
lately... which requires alcohol to mention...
Anyone tried lifekeeper for linux? It's basically MSCS (which I don't like
for obvious reasons and others) but with support up to 16 nodes rather than
a measely two.
You need fibre channel for the 16 nodes - mucho deneros, else you can use
shared scsi and only two nodes. But you can cluster applications, we setup
MySql and Apache, and brutally shut off machines for the laugh, and it was
almost seamless as far as the clients were concerned - 20 seconds as far as
I can remember - but this is adjustable - and better than MSCS can do.
It rocks, but at 2 grand a node, its not cheap.

I know zip about VMS - hope I don't get hung for this one...
