HP Serviceguard for Linux is high availability clustering software designed to protect applications and services from planned and unplanned downtime. Serviceguard for Linux ensures 24 x 7 application availability by packaging an application or service with its associated resources, and moving that package to other servers as needed. Packages can be moved automatically when Serviceguard detects a failure in a resource, or manually in order to perform system maintenance or upgrades. By monitoring the health of each server (node) within a cluster, Serviceguard for Linux quickly responds to failures such as those that affect processes, memory, LAN media and adapters, disk, operating environments, and more. Serviceguard for Linux also includes many out-of-the-box features that ensure scalability and allow intricate control over cluster configuration, and optimizes in-house expertise for businesses already running Serviceguard for HP-UX. A complete set of solutions backed by a worldwide network of support and services all work together to bring enterprise-class availability to the industry-standard, open source Linux enterprise.
