1 of my locations is running Windows 2000 MSCE (2 nodes) with a shared
Array about 100+ gigs of disk space. Basic setup is Active/Passive. My
second location is running Windows 2003 MSCE with a HP solution and over
1 Terabyte of disk space. Basic setup again Active/Passive 2 node
cluster. I have a front end load balancer (hardware) that load balances
the request and distributes the request to 5 front end servers. Each
front end server is connected to the database via a connection string
using OLEDB.

I am running Firebird Superserver 1.5.1. Very little over head and very
easy to configure.

Hi Mike,

Could you elaborate on this ?

What kind of cluster do you have ?

Are you doing load balancing ? ou just fail over ?

How do diferent server access the same db ?

I have read that CS *could* be used (after some transformation, don't
know of wich kind) be used on clusters, but I thought it was

Can someone shed a light on this ???

see you !
