I have the opportunity to re architect many of the services on our network while virtualizing the servers (ESX 4). My goal is to provide 100% redundant servers for each service. I'll ask a separate question for each service.
WWW server requirements:
- scale performance among 2 or more nodes
- have the ability to take any single node off line for maintenance without affecting users
- simple to implement and manage
We have a Sonicwall NSA 3500, if it has the ability to load balance two web servers would most likely take it as simplest solution.
Currently using IIS 7 with shared configuration on a DFS share. Not exactly simple...
