Simple. Wolfpack is the piece of Microsoft software which was built to
suggest the world M$ invented high availability clustering. When Unix has
had it for years, that is. 2 nodes only, simple failover, no concurrent
access like with Oracle Parallel Server, etc., quite premature compared
to HP's MC/ServiceGuard, IBM's HACMP for AIX, DEC's Trucluster, SNI's
Observe etc etc. I worked as a 2nd level support specialist for IBM's
HACMP, and what I see from Wolfpack is ridiculous. But their marketecture
is plain great. For technical information about concepts etc. see the Linux
High Availability HOWTO.
