"Red Hat, Inc. (Nasdaq:RHAT), a leader in open source Internet infrastructure solutions, today announced the Red Hat High Availability Server 1.0, a specialized version of the award-winning Red Hat Linux 6.2 solution."

"Red Hat High Availability Server is an out-of-the-box clustering solution that delivers dynamic load balancing, improved fault tolerance and scalability of TCP/IP based applications. It lets users combine individual servers into a cluster, resulting in highly available access to critical network resources such as data, applications, network services, and more. If one server in the cluster fails, another will automatically take over its workload. The Red Hat High Availability Server is ideally suited to web servers, ftp servers, mail gateways, firewalls, VPN gateways and other front-end IP-based applications where virtually uninterrupted service is required."

"The Red Hat High Availability Server is optimized specifically for ISPs and corporate customers who want to dramatically reduce the time needed for implementation," said Paul McNamara, vice president, Products and Platforms, Red Hat, Inc. "In today's demanding internet environment, server failure means lost revenue and diminished customer satisfaction. With this product, we are providing customers with a flexible, affordable, and highly available front end internet infrastructure solution. Because the Red Hat High Availability Server software can be installed on any off-the-shelf commodity hardware that supports Linux - it offers service providers and corporate IT departments an option for increased availability at a significant overall cost savings."
