I am new to this concept. :)
Can I use a distributed filesystem in as a way to have redundancy for web applications?
Server A and Server B would have Apache/mySql installed on the distributed filesystem and server C manages the connections (if sA is down, go to sB - or a round-robin DNS). Would something like this work?
If so, that would be awesome, since I would not have to worry about db syncing and file syncing.
Edit: Thank you very much all for the informative answers! Lots of things for me to digest. I (almost) randomly nominated an answer.
