services, like FTP or e-mail.

Available as additional programs to the highly reliable Red Hat
Enterprise Server distribution, Red Hat Cluster Suite provides two
different types of clustering namely Application/Service Failover
and IP Load Balancing. Its Cluster Manager provides application
failover, while its Load Balancer gives the ability to load balance
IP traffic across a farm of servers."
