High Availability Systems using Virtualisation and Routing Protocols
Samuel John Groves
The aim of the project was to produce a functional design and proof of concept implementation of a high availability environment for distributed systems that can split between geographically separate data-centres, providing protection against loss of IT services even in the event of loss of one site.
The fully functional scaled-down proof of concept implementation constructed in the project, used a variety of technologies and software systems; including OSPF and BGP routing protocols, Spanning Tree Protocol, VLANs and 802.1q trunking, VMWare server, the Quagga routing suite and Heartbeat software from the linux-ha project. The implementation demonstrated all of the key design features and project goals.
