openMosix or something else?

I've been searching the net for weeks. I've found countless tools, OS's, applications but have become terribly confused.

First, here's a little on what I need and what I'm using;

I'm been using Plesk for basic ISP services and it's fine for just that, basic services but not HA and/or scalable services such as I need. I also have several web servers doing their own things and all of these things should really be tied into one big system with shared storage or parallel storage, what ever I can do which does not need a team of specialists to run .

What I need;

I need to set up mail services with fully featured webmail as well as mail client access. Horde is used on PSA but it does not allow you to do that very easily. I need something which would allow me to customize webmail login pages. Not the biggest problem however .

I also need to set up HA web services which can easily be scaled to add low cost servers as needed. I have dozens of servers readily handy and would like to put them to use rather then get into the endless 'more power' situations I've always been in.


From what I've seen, many clustering packages handle load balancing as well with a control server which directs tasks. I do have appliance based LB's such as Radware so could also do the load balancing with those.

The problem is that many of these clusters seem to be for spreading one task across many machines for scientific reasons and other tasks. I've come across a few 'farm' type packages but it's all become confusing now since they all seem to do different things.

What would the experts on here use? I've been leaning towards openMosix but would love to get some input before I go through all of this. I'm looking for something that I can expand easily, add more servers as needed and even have a couple on a separate network as backup and temporary redundancy.

Your help or questions in determining the best solutions are most welcome.

Thank you in advance.
