this may be a little off-topic, but I value your opinions.
I'm running our company mailserver and webserver on a single host
machine using vservers. There have been problems in the past so I
am now faced with the tast of keeping the vital services redundant
across two machines to have a switchover in case of failure.
In numbers, this means I will have to synchronize 90 Gigs of Maildata
and another 16 Gigs of vserver data (using SuSE, vunify was not an
option) over a direct 1GB link between the two machines.
I already copied the maildata, and it took just a few hours.
Anyone have some pointers what I should look at that can make keeping
all this data synchronous easy?
I am now looking into rsync, but I had problems in the past with it not
being able to handle really large amounts of data.
Might be the new version has got this issue fixed.
So thank you for your time reading this.
I hope there will be some good suggestions.
