Hello,

I am looking at introducing a group of students to clustering and HA.

I have used various solutions over the years (mc serviceguard, MSCS, etc).. but am looking at a way I can do this in a learning environment - with preferably free software students can use... I'm planning on using Linux.. and am wondering if anyone has any tips on the best way to approach this.

Thank you all,
Richard

I think the best way would be to use something like VMWare (maybe you could get some educational license or something). I used to work a a product for IBM called HACMP which was their high availability clustering software for AIX. However today my impression is that HA is more often than not accomplished via virtual ubiquity and lots of dynamic provisioning of real resources. The cloud would probably be a good example....

You can just use two virtual machines running a RHEL clone, then you can setup a cluster on the two(or however many you want) virtual machines using pacemaker so then you can also use the RHEL documentation.
