  Description     : High-Availability (HA) solution

"SGI's Linux FailSafe is the premiere next generation High-Availability (HA)
 solution for business critical applications. It provides a simple way to
 make your applications HA without having to resort to rewriting or recompiling
 or the need to invest in expensive hardware solutions. Linux FailSafe provides
 a robust clustering environment with resilience from any single point of failure.

Linux FailSafe is architected to scale up to 16 nodes in a cluster with the
 cluster members sharing storage. Linux FailSafe and shared storage allows
 multiple servers to assume control of data in the event of a failure. At the
 point of failure, applications are resumed on the remaining system{s} and
 filesystems are automatically made available to their applications.

Plugins are the application-specific interface between Linux FailSafe and the
 application or resource that makes it highly-available. The following table
 lists the available plugins:
