Application Aware NLB and Clustering solutions
Posted on 2010-01-01
I'm doing a survey in order to find the best way to assure the lowest downtime and the best load management to the critical applications in my organization
I'm using Windows Server on VMware VI 3.5.4(Upgrading to vSphere soon)
Right now we're using MSCS to provide Application aware clustering (even for single node Clusters). On the other hand, we are using Microsoft NLB for load balancing.
I'm looking for a way to combine the two things, and to lessen the complexity caused by using MSCS in a VMware environment.
The applications are all based on .Net, some are web applications, and the others are client-server.
