Cluster Solution

hi

happy new year people

I have a general question
the idea is create a cluster solution (not very expensive between 12000 - 18000 $$)

the idea is create this cluster using DL servers
what do you think about proliant Dl380 G5?

you have any other ideas or options?
solution: W2003 - SQL

waiting for some help

regards

Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!

Re: Cluster Solution

If all you are looking at is SQL data, using MS SQL's mirror servers are a better option. This means you don't need to buy the shared storage that a traditional cluster requires.

You can use a very basic machine like a Dl120 as your monitor server to arbitrate a failover. Two mirrored DL380's work well for this scenario.

Re: Cluster Solution

thanks a lot for your advice

that was my initial thought getting an additional storage device wold be much more expensive

so you recommend me Dl380 G5 as cluster solution right?
