 Building a Web Cluster with FreeSBIE

"Suppose that we need to build a cluster of web servers to serve HTTP and HTTPS connections. Why do we need a cluster? First of all, our web services are heavily loaded; having one or two CPU systems and a lot of RAM is not enough anymore. Secondly, our services need 24x7 availability and this requires an excellent fail-over backup system, which should be completely transparent for customers and normal web surfers. Nobody cares how many servers and sites we have; everyone only wants to see the requested web page."
