I figured I would see what other people would do and get some ideas on
what route I want to take.
Let me first give you a brief summary of my network and application.
I have a Cisco PIX FW and a Cisco 11501 CSS/LB, there are 5 network
nodes behind them. Three are webservers running apache/mongrel and 2
are mysql servers ( master/slave replication )
The three webservers have limited disk space.
I need a way to keep my data in sync across all nodes. A user would
upload artwork and other media after logging in, so since the data is
private I can't create a VIP in the LB like http://mydomain.com/images
and route it to a specific node.
So essientially, I am trying to figure out the best way to keep my
media uploads in sync across all nodes. Right now I am using a mounted
NFS mount to a master server on each client, but I am afraid of the
I can't use a master upload server and Rsync hence the disk space issue.
I am open to any suggestions that you guys have here, I don't want to
have my media uploads "split-brained". Any thoughts on this would be
