I imagine if I could get 2 identical machines, I could make the backup machine to clone the HD contents of the master one, so when the last is down the former could, with the help of a load balancer, to keep the services alive with no need to update it manually.
My current setup requires me to update applications in both servers manually, and I want to do it in only one.
As a partial answer to this question I have imagined 3 scenarios where it would be possible:
- Cloud: 1 storage + VMs, when you update the storage all VMs can fetch the new image
- Physical machines + Storage: A app updates the applications fetching from a central repository
- Physical machines: A app updates the applications fetching from another machine
My current setup would allow me only the 3rd scenario. Is there any Windows feature that would help me with that?
