I need advice for a small setup. Infact, I will be using 1 dedicated box for Web Server, 1 busy site will be hosted over it and the second will be used as a database server plus mail server. I will also be putting 2 servers as backup for those first 2. As in any case, any active node goes down the passive node takes over. Piranha works ?
Infact, I could be wrong here cause of lack of comunication skills, but the solution I want is for a busy web portal. I am seriously thinking of fdcservers.net
. They seem to be good, heard a lots of praise for them
So, I think its not a good move to ask about joining fdcservers.net
or not. My concern is what solution would suite me for such senerio.
What about the backup servers. Practically thay should *not* be in the same facility or sharing the same pipe as the other servers using. As it could only help in case of physical failover. What in case the main carrier goes down and there is no other route for the backup server to respond ? How could I implement a good clustering setup with it ?
