Linux World Expo

Just thought I'd drop a note in about Linux World Expo
Sam Ockman's talk was quite successfully turned into a
question and answer session. I briefly outlined where we
are up to with fail-over mechanisms, heartbeat and the like.
Stephen Tweedy talked about cluster based redundancy
somewhat akin to what is found on VMS. The audience asked
lots of interesting questions.
On the fail-over (as opposed to clustering) side of this
someone mentioned GFS - The Global File System
(http://gfs.lcse.umn.edu/) which allows severless access
devices on technologies such as fiber channel.
In general there was quite a lot of interest in HA at the
show though I have nothing in particular to report.
