Software clustering for Asp.net 2.0

Hi,

Does anybody know of a software package that allows for several
servers, running asp.net 2.0 to be clustered, regardless of where they
are located (ie. without a hardware load balancer). This way one could
link two or more dedicated servers, perhaps even running on different
hosts. Does something like this exist?

Thank you for your time!

Regards,

Jim

Your probably alluding to something called Stretch Clustering or distributed
clustering, which typcially requires fibre channels between devices. I've
not come across something like this for IIS servers but theres a lot of
papers about that discuss the concept.

Certainly appears that Linux can be stretch clustered, and mono runs on
linux - so techncially you could stretch cluster asp.net on mono, over
Linux, although I cant see much benefit for most solutions.

Some good reading here on one proposal called Walrus.....

....and some info on MS clustering approaches

Actually, I was refering to something like ClusterCAT (which clusters
Coldfusion apps).
This is more like the P2P of clustering where each node (server)
performs the job that a hardware load balancer would do otherwise

I've not heard of anything. Sounds like the kind of thing windows load
balancing would do out of the box.
