Clustering and Operating System

Hello, I need some help. Currently we have 2 Proliant 1600 servers at 15 locations, each set of servers is attached to a shared RA3000 RAID array attached to an adaptec 2944UW differential SCSI. We need to set up clustering on these systems and the only solution I have found viable is Reliant HA 1.1, has anyone done this. Also, we have the option to try and get the customer to go to SUSE Linux, would this offer more solutions and would it work on the 1600 servers? Would SUSE Linux or another Linux be a better operating system than Unixware 7.1, if not now then in the near future? Any other possible soluitons? Thanks for any help you can give or links to places that might be able to provide some info I can research.
Thanks in advance again.

Re: Clustering and Operating System

Scsi clustering is not supported on proliant servers, you would have to go with a fiber solution like the ra4100 storage system. I would personally choose linux for clustering, and redhat advanced server 2.1 has support for clustering built in.
