RE: [Linux-cluster] redhat cluster, or cluster project questions?



Lars,
  You forgot OpenSSI (which Particio asked about).  OpenSSI's goal is to provide a very easy to manage cluster, for all forms of clustering (parallel programming, load balancing, web serving, storage, database and high availability), in part by integrating other open source project technology.  OpenSSI did support GFS and later OGFS.  It will again support GFS on 2.6 in a couple of months.   The HA provided in OpenSSI is much simpler than that in ha-linux.
