Re: [K12OSN] HA Clustering k12ltsp



With DHCP load balancing and the new ldm load balancing, things work
pretty well now. The clustering issue I see is the user data stateful
aspect: if a system failure at the server level occurs, all users on
that server will loose access (and likely their working data as well)
until they restart their client and re-login. The fail-over is the next
area of deep work. Current efforts to mitigate this are very challenging
as it is a difficult problem. OpenSSI has much promise. There are other
clustering solutions but they all center around _stateless_ user
transactions. Think web servers and read mostly, write seldom databases
as the main HA clustering solutions.

OpenMosix has mostly stalled. Mosix is a rather expensive, proprietary
solution but is a very viable option. Kerrihged shows much promise as
well.
