Failover and Load Balance Solution

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Michael Shiah, Jul 7, 2003.

  1. Hi all,

    Our company has a web server(IIS) presenting our products. Now We're
    gonna install two web servers and setup a new environment as follows:

    1. We wanna an environment which has failover function between the two
    servers.
    2. We wanna an environment which has STATEFUL failover function
    between the two servers.
    3. We wanna an environment which has load balance function between the
    two server.

    Can anyone give me some advise to the solutions above? Please can you
    list the MINIMUM solution dedicated to each requirement for cost down.
    Any solution is welcome, not only Cisco solution.

    Regards,

    Generally speaking, the Cisco solution to those tasks would be
    the CSS series such as the CSS 11050. There is a comparison chart
    of the models at

    As, though, you asked for the "MINIMAL" solution, you may wish to
    look into Microsoft's own clustering software. I seem to recall
    reading recently that some people consider that software to be
    less reliable than they might hope, but reliability was not
    one of the factors you asked us to consider in presenting the
    "minimal" solutions.
