Dear Mr. Srinivas,
we are running a Linux Virtual Server with 9 servers and 2 load
balancers based on keepalived.
Underlying file system is OpenAFS with a replication/failover-handling
based on drbd-heartbeat.
Applications: Tomcat, Twiki, Catalyst/HTML-Mason, MTA (courier), Web
Services (SOAP::Lite), database (MySQL), file serving (CIFS/samba)
We are validating different cluster filesystems to replace OpenAFS due
to its bad write performance.
Backup software should be dirvish (hard links necessary)
gfarm: no automatic replication during write, metadata can become
inconsistent, no hardlinks, good performance
lustre: hard links ok., failover only via heartbeat and iSCSI, bad
performance for grep operations (TWiki), many kernel patches!!!
glusterfs: looks promising, hardlinks, good performancs, easy
administration, good to medium performance for grep (Twiki), overall
good performance, roadmap promising
A failover handling is necessary, because we need a 6x24 availibilty
for our CNC-machines and worldwide locations.
Best Regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen
