Redhat Cluster Setup Guide

Here is Redhat Cluster Suite Setup Quick Guide prepared by Ramu Yadav. This nice article is gives a clear idea about cluster setup.. 

For applications that require maximum uptime, a Red Hat Enterprise Linux cluster with Red Hat Cluster Suite is the answer. Specifically designed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Cluster Suite provides two distinct types of clustering:
  • Application/Service Failover - Create n-node server clusters for failover of key applications and services
  • IP Load Balancing - Load balance incoming IP network requests across a farm of servers
With Red Hat Cluster Suite, applications can be deployed in high availability configurations so that they are always operational-bringing "scale-out" capabilities to Enterprise Linux deployments.

For high-volume open source applications, such as NFS, Samba, and Apache, Red Hat Cluster Suite provides a complete ready-to-use failover solution. For most other applications, customers can create custom failover scripts using provided templates. Red Hat Professional Services can provide custom Red Hat Cluster Suite deployment services where required.

Here is example setup and simple guide to setup a cluster based on redhat cluster suite.
