BW: Mission Critical Linux's High-Availability Cluster Center Stage At the Intel Developer Forum

Aug 21, 2000, 22:27 (0 Talkback[s])

"Leadership Linux HA Cluster to Run on Intel's New Technology."

"Mission Critical Linux's innovative high-availability Convolo Cluster product will be highlighted this Tuesday in a keynote speech by Albert Y.C. Yu, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel's Architecture Group, at the Intel Developer Forum Fall Conference in San Jose. The keynote, entitled "Leadership Platforms in all Segments", will include a demonstration of an IA-64-based Convolo Cluster seamlessly integrated with an IA-32 Intel web server farm to provide back-end high availability for dynamic data."

"The system uses an IA-64-based Convolo Cluster to guarantee high availability for the front-end, IA-32-based servers. The redundant web servers access the main databases through a two-node cluster configuration that uses shared storage disks to ensure the integrity of dynamic data during transactions. The cluster server nodes, which are connected to a shared storage controller, keep track of all dynamic data entering the databases; when one node shuts down or fails, the other node accesses the disk and uses transaction logs to recover the database and continue operation."
