Subject Re: [users@httpd] Web server fail over setup

   I ran LVS for about 5 years, mostly while it was in its infancy. We do over a billion hits
a year, and I had it running on VERY small machines, heading 4 others with many Vhosts. It
cost a couple of grand for the two boxes.

  The result of this was proof that we needed the solution, and we should invest money in
  A couple of years ago, we replaced the LVS boxes with F5's. The F5's are linux based, and
get the job done quite well. It's going to cost about 30k+ to get involved though. They have
been doing the job quite well ever since, and route about 30 virts to various backend devices.

Don't let your dream ride pass you by. Make it a reality with Yahoo! Autos.
