Very true Andrew,
I set up a test case using mod_backhand and wackamole, wich is all distributed. But mod_backhand doesn't exist for Apache 2.0, so I'm looking towards LVS for load balancing. Wackamole does the failover thingy quite perfect.
Have you got any in depth howto's or guides that u used or some more documentation, because I find the documentation on the lvs site quite minimalistic at least.
NZVLE guys, what solution are you using to keep the cluster up, have you got some more specific info on that and is it possible to share this?
