    Thank you.

    clustering in both is different, interworx just does load balancing and replication, whereas h-sphere does a clustered setup within different OSes, email/dns/web servers.

    does it really?

    all evidence that i find says it's shared NAS just like interworx.

    in fact... there network diagram says the same thing.

    all tired to the same NAS... which does NOT give you independent clustering.

    NAS is not needed with Hpshere, I don't know about Interworx

    With H-Sphere you can use a NAS if you want some load balancing but is up to you and what you want.

    Yes, even better, if your web server is getting full, just plug another box, same with MySQL, mail, dns, etc.

    ok..

    now will the mail functions be still be on the web server but just in a turned off state?

    also.. will it allow me to compile my own version of the programs. Which as mysql, and use qmail instead of postfix?

    You can use a box for one or more services, web and mail can share a box or you can use one box for each service.

    In our case we route mail from webserver through mail box

    Hsphere use Qmail as MTA, you can make some customizations.

    Hsphere has a very friendly and active community check http://www.forum.psoft.net/
