Proxy/Web/FTP Server Redundancy?


Hello,

I am looking to do this.... Is it possible?

Right now I have a Linux Server that is in my DMZ that is acting as a Reverse Proxy/Web/FTP server.

I would like to know if it would be possible and how it would be possible to set up a second server that would be a redundant counter part to the first server.

I don't know really the proper terminology but I think I am looking for a High Availability Failover solution?

If it could be load-balanced that would be cool but is not needed.

If this enough information?

Thanks in Advanced.

Yes, you can have both. Take a look at heartbeat, and I know there are tools to provide load balancing between two servers. Squid has failover/load balancing capabilities.

Since you don't say what kind of web/proxy/ftp software you're using, or what version/distro of Linux, it's hard to be more specific.

I would use IP aliasing or ARP spoofing take a look at this site for theory on automation.

Thank you I will read up on them.

The reason why I didn't post the OS Software Etc is because I can chance it to what ever in this process.

As of right now its ubuntu with apache and the mod_proxy and vsftp (off the top of my head for the FTP)

-Thank you
