    Hey There everyone!

    I need an advice from a real guru

    I have 2x P4 , 2GB Ram servers and now i am getting a RAID hot-swap Hard drive array. Right now i am rapidly running out of space and cpu , I have in mind , connecting this Raid array to one server install PSA box to both servers ,connect them via GB eth cards (servers are in one datacenter) and in my.cnf fix the data path to the RAID array on both servers , then just fix 2 A records in the dns , so that requests are equally spread to both servers.

    I am willing to do that in a week, so I though may be there is another better maybe cheaper way

    any advices are welcome!

    Thanks in advance.

    if they are in the same data center you could cluster them with something like http://www.linux-ha.org/ DRBD will also let you expand the raid mirror to each server across the network.

    A cluster with drbd wont double the size of space and CPU - unless you have an active-active cluster. Which is (IMHO) not possible with DRBD (free version) at the moment now.
