I'm new to GFS. I'm searching around a solution for our enterprise
application that is responsible to save(and manipulate) historical data
of industrial devices. Now, we have two stations that works like hot
redundant of each other. Our challenge is in case of failure. For now,
our application is responsible to handling fault by synchronizing the
files that changed during the fault, by itself. Our application is
running on two totally independent machines (one as redundant) and so
each one has its own disk.
We are searching around a solution like a "high available transparent
file system" that makes the fault transparent to the application, so in
case of fault, redundant machine still can access the files even the
master machine is down (replica issue or such a thing).
Is there fail-over feature in GFS that satisfy our requirement? Actually, my question is that can GFS help us in our case?
