EAC clustering on Mac OS X

servers. Designed to offer a price-effective cluster platform for horizontal scaling of web applications, EAC scales from small and medium size environments to high-end server platform environments, offering performance scalability and load balancing, fault tolerance and continuous availability with fast fail-over, and centralized cluster management.

"The network continues to be a mission critical business system for organizations of all sizes. XServe G5 is the ideal server for cross-platform file and print, workgroup management, video streaming, database applications, high-performance computing, and web and mail serving, " said Eero Teerikorpi, CEO of Emic Networks. "With Emic Application Cluster, you now can add application cluster to this list. It allows Xserve customers to achieve greater scalability and reliability with the industry's fastest synchronous replication."



"The XServe G5 is affordable, easy to manage and delivers unparalleled performance with up to 30 gigaflops of processing power per system," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "The addition of Emic Application Cluster makes the Xserve G5 a perfect solution for high availability Web sites."

    Sweet!

    I just looked at this for Linux and it appears to be a very robust solution. I asked their support folks about the possibility of porting this application to MacOS X, and they said they were working on it, but didn't have a release date. I'm thrilled that this is now available!

    This is great!

    One of the biggest complaints of the XServe is that it doesn't have redundant powersupplies. If you are in to 99.999% up time, you should have multiple servers anyway. This makes that argument moot.

    Re: This is great!

    I agree. The biggest advantage of the configurations noted in EMICs white papers and installation guides is that you can lose one without losing the cluster. I think it's a pretty cool concept. And, in this configuration, you could use the cluster nodes instead of the higher-end X-Serves.
