They monitor the application and perform the actions requested by FailSafe.

It is a "standard" failover cluster solution, with up to 8 nodes per cluster,
shared storage support (but not required), nice GUI, command line tools, huge
documentation etc.

Linux FailSafe itself and the agents which come with it are Open Source,
though setting up a useable HA system requires more than just software and
some hardware...

Normal server.

You can check out FailSafe at (the
-books RPM contains a huge amount of documentation) or
