Specifically designed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Cluster Suite provides two distinct types of clustering: Application/Service Failover - Create n-node server clusters for failover of key applications and services; IP Load Balancing - Load balance incoming IP network requests across a farm of servers
With Red Hat Cluster Suite, applications can be deployed in high availability configurations so that they are always operational—bringing "scale-out" capabilities to enterprise Linux deployments. For high-volume open source applications, such as NFS, Samba, and Apache, Red Hat Cluster Suite provides a complete ready-to-use failover solution. For most other applications, customers can create custom failover scripts using provided templates. Red Hat Professional Services can provide custom Red Hat Cluster Suite deployment services where required.
Red Hat GFS allows a cluster of Linux servers to share data in a common pool of storage, allowing you to: Greatly simplify your data infrastructure: Install and patch applications once, for the entire cluster; Reduce the need for redundant copies of data; Simplify back-up and disaster recovery tasks; Maximize use of storage resources and minimize your storage costs: Manage your storage capacity as a whole vs. by partition; Decrease your overall storage needs by reducing data duplication; Scale clusters seamlessly, adding storage or servers on the fly: No more partitioning storage with complicated techniques; Add servers simply by mounting them to the common file system
