FTP Cluster or Failover?

Hi there,

I'm looking for a solution that will allow 2 FTP servers to be mirrored such that if one server fails, the other takes over.

This means that files need to be mirrored between the 2 and the user database needs to be shared. Anyone know of any such products for Windows Server 2003?

Or any possible solutions that are similar?

as SAN/NAS storage would be best for the setup.

anyways, you may try to run through this.

Hi there, I choose a different path than the SAN/NAS that involved mirroring using SyncBack. But that's a good pointer for the article from MS.
