"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."
