I've an email server here in my job that is starting to get slow
because of the high volume of emails passing through it.
Today it's a single machine running smtp+auth, pop and imap services, as
any email server.
I'm new to clustering and was wondering what would be the best solution
when clustering an email server.
Today we've 1 server with a storage where all mailboxes (mbox format)
and home dirs are stored.
I'm planning to use 3 or 4 nodes running imap, pop and smtp, all of them
sharing users' data.
Should I use NFS or GFS?
Is there any other good way to deal with this?
Any thoughts are welcome.
Thanks in advance,
(sorry about my english :-) )
