Thanks to a conversation with a friend, I've finally made up my mind: I'm going for the hard way, building the #cluster
all by myself from the ground up with #Pacemaker
He's a non-techie, but always interested to know what makes people tick. I tried to explain why I struggled with the choice between going for an almost ready-to-run solution, and taking the trouble of building everything myself, which will obviously take a lot more time. While I was doing that, he pulled an Oracle on me:
So, yes, I think I had already made the decision. It's a lot of work, but it's also something you can take pride in. Last time I built an #HA
cluster, I used #Heartbeat
. Turns out that Heartbeat has died a long time ago. It's been too long to remember much of what I built back then anyway.
I made the first 2 cross cables today and set up the bond device for #DRBD
. Always nice to see #iperf
report "1.83 Gbits/sec".
