    Clustering suggestions

    Congratulations for your product :

    - Simple
    - Lightweight
    - Full featured control panel
    - APF support
    - Multiple domains
    - Real-time graphical statistics
    - Pleasant to use
    - an api well documented usable in php
    - Clustering management
    - Cheap, at least cheaper than cPanel and obviously Plesk
    - It makes the difference with free control panel among are ISPConfig, Easy Hosting Panel, GNUPanel, Webmin/Virtualmin (the free editions which miss capabilities), GPLHost, IspCP Omega, SysCP, VHCS.

    Well, how not to love it ?
    Regarding the load balacing, LVS always comes to mind but even more with HAProxy http://haproxy.1wt.eu/. Were there a reson for not having consider it ? Licence http://haproxy.1wt.eu/download/1.3/doc/LICENSE does seem to be the problem.

    Several questions/suggestions :

    - Does Interworx work without a problem, including high availability and licence respectful context, in a VPS environment ?

    - Does Interworx allow the APF management in a cluster context ? that is, to avoid APF configuration node per node.

    - Does the clustering works for multiple domains ?

    - Actually, the Cluster Manager server is a single point of failure and so a single point of bottleneck. It seems InterWorx-CP will support High Availability (HA) Clusters one day. On a high level, will it be on 4.x or 5.x release ?

    - As a shared storage can eventually be "sensible", do you consider a distributed fault tolerant file systems ? I don't mean here a very complex infrastructure, some of them are quite "simple, Lightweight but powerful". One example is GlusterFS http://www.gluster.com/products/features.php which would be a must to have.

    I suggested VPS.NET hosting to have a look into Interworx in order for its huge customer base to have the benefits of Interworx. It could be a good idea you also contact them to propose your product.

    Thanks

    We hope to investigate ha-proxy more in the future, but so far LVS has been very good for our customer's needs

    Licence http://haproxy.1wt.eu/download/1.3/doc/LICENSE does seem to be the problem.
    That's interesting, I'm not sure how that might affect us if we were to use it.

    Several questions/suggestions :
    - Does Interworx work without a problem, including high availability and licence respectful context, in a VPS environment ?
    We don't support high-availability configurations (yet). However, if you were to come up with your own high-availability VPS setup with interworx, as long as the primary IP of the interworx server was the same you would have no license issues.

    - Does Interworx allow the APF management in a cluster context ? that is, to avoid APF configuration node per node.
    I'm not sure I understand the question. It is possible to run APF with an interworx cluster, yes.

    - Does the clustering works for multiple domains ?
    Yes, absolutely.

    - Actually, the Cluster Manager server is a single point of failure and so a single point of bottleneck.
    It seems InterWorx-CP will support High Availability (HA) Clusters one day. On a high level, will it be on
    4.x or 5.x release ?
    High Availablity is most definitely on the roadmap, with various possible configurations - it will be a 5.x+ version feature, not a 4.x feature. It's a big one!

    We don't have specific examples using these kinds of filesystems with interworx yet, but we are looking into them, and we will definitely offically support them in the near future.

    Thanks! I'll make sure we do that. And thanks for all the comments and questions!

    I spent quite a bit of time trying on my own to create an HA solution for the CM. I gave up/ran out of time. It's certainly doable, but you have to know quite a bit about the internals of iworx itself.

    Did you investigate ha-proxy ?

    Do you support high-availability configurations now ?

    Did you look into them ? Lately, it seems everyone is adopting Ceph. What is your choice on the subject ?

    Hi Kynao,

    HA is still under works and we don't have a public timetable for it's release -- you will be notified when it is ready, though! And no, no ceph or other such file systems yet.

    Thanks!

    Ok, no public timetable so no date and no specific release but is it still planned for a 5.x release or is it pushed to a 6.x release ?
