"A Linux start-up last week introduced clustering failover software which gives users added protection against server downtime. SteelEye Technology launched LifeKeeper, a high-availability server-failover package for Linux."

"LifeKeeper supports RedHat Linux 6 and features predictive-analysis capabilities that highlight potential problems before a server crashes, letting an IT manager take the system down without disrupting user operations."

"Find/SVP, a business advisory service in New York, estimates an hour of downtime will cost a brokerage firm $6.45 million and an airline ticketing system nearly $90,000 in lost sales revenue. Strategic Research of Santa Barbara, Calif., says approximately 15% of PC servers and 26% of Unix servers will be clustered in 2003."
