You mean, whether there are other HA solutions? Of course.

There keepalived, the RedHat Cluster Suite, some implementations of the
Service-Availability-Forum specifications ... Google will tell you more
about them ;-)

But even Linux HA isn't too complicated for embedded systems; just
because the flexibility is there doesn't mean you've got to use it. You
could deploy a standarized configuration just the same.
