Has anyone here used carp from openbsd before. I just read up on the protocol and was trying to understand it. 1) Is it included with redhat? 2) is it really hard to configure? 3) where can I download it at? 4) i wanted to use it to make two zimbra servers redundant - do you think this would work?

I don't know about CARP for Linux. Probably it doesn't support it. CARP is a free alternative of Cisco's VRRP on OpenBSD. At the same time Linux has support of HSRP, that is also a free alternative to VRRP.
You may use it there.
As I see in product chart for Zimbra: http://www.zimbra.com/products/product_editions.html
All editions except open source supports HA clustering. Without this support even with redundant (roaming) IP address you will have a lot of troubles in area of synchronization and common storage between nodes. It's probably better to ask zimpbra support how do they provide redundancy and buy appropriate edition if you are saticfied with their answer. I didn't find any documentation about clustering on Zimbra docs page.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Then no clustering is available. Of course you may invent bicycle again, I mean add clustring support to opensource edition (when it's already there, in all other editions), but I'm sure that is not a recommended way...
