Linux FailSafe - High Availability for Linux

The Linux FailSafe project is a community development effort lead by SuSE and SGI to port SGI's field proven IRIS FailSafe product to Linux. FailSafe provides a full suite of high-availability capabilities for Linux. These include full N-node cluster membership and quorum services, application monitoring and failover-restart capabilities, with a set of nice GUI tools for administering and monitoring HA clusters.

It is the purpose of this talk to ease getting involved with the Linux FailSafe project - porting, enhancing, and of course deploying it on your network.

I will outline the feature of FailSafe, review the internal structure, the exported interfaces, describe the issues with the port and give an up to date status.
