 CARP your way to high availability

"CARP is an improved version of the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) standard. The latest protocol to help provide high availability and network redundancy, it was developed because router giant Cisco Systems believes that its Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) patent covers some of the same technical areas as VRRP.
