As some of you know, UNIXy has engineered a cross data center failover solution for Virtual Private Servers. The solution consists of two mirrored VPS nodes running in two distant and independent data center facilities with separate power grids, network, and management personnel. The benefit of such setup is that a website can be reachable at anytime, rain or shine, regardless of outages. The idea is that the chance of two independent data center facilities being down at the same time is almost zero. No single facility can ever achieve such uptime!
The amount of interest this solution has generated is amazing! Today, we have decided to show the world that this solution simply works. We are announcing the cPanel VPS auto failover challenge! This is our way of eating our own dog food. Over the next few days, we will be communicating the full details of the challenge including the domain name and content that shall live and shine forver.
The event will be announced on http://www.cpanelfailover.com
Stay tuned! :)
