Re: Storage & Cluster

Hello,

120 GB is nothing today. You will get much more space then you acutal need.

The ML110 G5 Storage Server is what you need, but there is no clustering feature.

The DL380 G5 Storage Server x64 SAN Model gives you a choice to build a cluster, but it's expensive.

Do you need the cluster feature?

Re: Storage & Cluster

Hello,

Then you have to take a DL380 G5 Storageserver and an external Storage, like an MSA2000fc. You need an external Storage for a cluster solution.

If you are firm with linux, you can build a Samba Cluster with two small ML110 G5 or ML150, Linux, DRBD, Heartbeat and Samba. In this case you can use the local storage. The data will be replicated over DRBD. Heartbeat will start the Samba Daemon on the other running server, if the first server crashs.

Re: Storage & Cluster

sounds like you need the Polyserve Linux file sharing functionality.

www.hp.com/go/polyserve

IT provides a clustering technology on Linux or windows and a Cluster file system and file sharing via virtual IPs that failover using CIFS on windows and NFS on Linux
