    Combining two servers together

    I tried searching for this but I wasn't able to find it...

    Well I have 2 servers in softlayer... and I have a download site. Because softlayer only lets you have 4 hard drives per server I had to get a new server so I can store more files... that being said... how do I combine these two servers together to one domain name? Thanks in advance!

    I would suggest NFS for Linux/FreeBSD,you may also try load balance

    Load balancing would be best option in my view. That way, download speed of files will be good.

    Since you're with SoftLayer you have a private network, so as fitesun said, you can use NFS to share files between the two servers. Then you can use round-robin DNS to load-balance.
