TURBOLINUX CLUSTER SERVER 8
Turbolinux has introduced Cluster Server 8 for two and 10 nodes. The software, which creates a virtual server to handle additional load, offers load balancing as well as hardware and software recovery to enable continuous Web service. Cluster Server provides a transparent, unified network view that's customizable and scalable for Linux, Windows or Sun Solaris. Most any TCP/IP service running on more than one machine at a time--including Web sites (HTTP, HTTPS), FTP, e-mail (SMPT, POP3 and IMAP), news (NNTP), DNS, and DB2 or Oracle databases--can be clustered. Cluster Server uses SSL plus encryption to provide security. $1,549 for two nodes; $2,299 for 10 nodes. Turbolinux, (760) 318-0495. www.turbolinux.com
