Clustering software with load balancing, mirroring and failover

Evidian SafeKit

High availability and scalability of critical web and database applications with the SafeKit clustering software

The SafeKit clustering software provides a simple high availability and scalability solution for critical web and database applications. As presented on the figure, with SafeKit, you can implement a farm cluster with network load balancing and failover and a mirror cluster with real-time replication and failover.

Clustering software with load balancing and mirroring

Example of load balancing and mirroring with the SafeKit clustering software

For example, with the SafeKit clustering software, you can implement Apache load balancing and MySQL mirroring. For that, you have to deploy a farm module for Apache and a mirror module for SQL server. Each farm and mirror module is configured with its own virtual IP address and its own restart scripts.

Both mirror and farm modules can be deployed on a single cluster of two servers. Apache and MySQL will run on these two servers. Or, as presented on the figure, the two modules can be deployed on different servers. With the SafeKit clustering software, there is no difference between a deployment on the same servers or on different servers.

As a result, network load balancing, real time data mirroring and application failover are managed coherently in a same product. When comparing the SafeKit clustering software with hardware clustering, you see that with SafeKit, you do not need shared disk, replicated SAN, load balancers, Enterprise editions of OS or database.

SafeKit Webinar

This webinar presents in 10 minutes Evidian SafeKit.

In this webinar, you will understand:

  • mirror and farm clusters
  • cost savings against hardware clustering solutions
  • best use cases
  • the integration process for a new application

Microsoft SQL Server Cluster

This video shows a mirror module configuration with synchronous real-time replication and failover.

The file replication and the failover are configured for Microsoft SQL Server but it works in the same manner for other databases.

Apache Cluster

This video shows a farm module configuration with load balancing and failover.

The load balancing and the failover are configured for Apache but it works in the same manner for other web services.

Hyper-V Cluster

This video shows a Hyper-V cluster with full replications of virtual machines.

Virtual machines can run on both Hyper-V servers and they are restarted in case of failure.
