comment If one SMTP Server is down, routing all requests to another, how to achieve?
I've recently tried to implement this, and came up with the fact that load balancing SMTP isn't so simple. You either have to enforce the use of authenticated SMTP (try switching 10,000 clients' configuration to this new configuration sometime), or have a load balancer that only allows certain IP ranges to send e-mail, or you'll have an open proxy server. Unfortunately, I haven't found a load balancer that does the latter yet.

comment 100% uptime for a web application
I think it's more a matter of perception than reality. I'm willing to bet that this customer perceives that Google is up 100% of the time. Of course, Google could go down for an hour every night for maintenance at 3am, but they would never know because they're not using it at that time.

comment Proliant ML350 G3 System board failure
This is an excellent example of why RAID isn't backups. If your data exists only on these drives, then attempting to recover that data will require a tricky and easy-to-get-horribly-wrong process, that will only work on 11+ year old hardware that you hope is going to be in working condition. Recovering your data from real backups that aren't on this same hardware is trivial.

This is the best answer so far, with the most helpful information and the best details.

comment Why is scp with compression slower than without?
He was specifically asking why the transfer rate was lower, but I suspect ssh actually calculates this by dividing data size by the total time the whole operation takes, and not separating the part where it compresses data and the part where it copies the data over the network.

comment exim4 is showing a TLS error on connection… (gnutls_handshake)
This might not have helped the original poster, but it did help me. The difference I suppose, is that I'm trying to test STARTTLS on a test server, using the live server's SSL cert. And, well, that just won't work until the test server becomes the live server.

comment Why is GlusterFS so slow here?
Note: Gluster v3.7 was released on May 18, 2015. No word on whether it fixes the small file issue yet.
