VMWare Fault Tolerance and many LINUX servers
Posted on 2009-05-16
I have a client that will have the need for about 20 LINUX Machines performing several functions. Some database driven servers, some servers will be pushing/pulling data from business partners.
Typically they have had a server for each function running on PC's. They have nothing in place for backup processes.
What I would like to do is get an environment together so that they could run VM's on a couple of different servers. If that one server would go down, they would have a way to get the VM's from the failed server on-line ASAP.
I am little new to VM, but understand the concept. We have a couple of VM's running LINUX servers for them now. We are running RHEL VM sessions of a WINDOWS server.
I would also like to be able migrate those VM's into a more enterprising solution.
Money is an object but my client seems to have an endless supply of it so would like to put something very robust together for them
Something that might be able to span data-centers!
