I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to build a server with HA.

I looked into Linux-HA, Heartbeat, Mesos.

I then found MOSIX. I don't know if it's a thing from the past that no one uses, but wouldn't make it a no-brainer to create a high-availability cluster that would be totally transparent to the software (and therefore easier to setup and configure)?

Thanks in advance.

  • Seems that mesos + marathon would be what you need.

Mosix has a different purpose. It's meant for parallel systems for HPC (high performance computing), not as a high availability solution.

  • thanks! wouldn't it make an installation HA, though?

  • @F.Ronati: The requirements of HPC computing are quite different from (load balanced) HA systems for general services as e.g. web servers so this would be a poor choice.
