Linux-HA Certifications

Sometimes, it is helpful to have a product certified against various testing and certification bodies, or have white papers written recommending a particular configuration. This can help in formal vendor processes such as IBM's system assurance review, and it can help managers decide that they can simply have confidence in a solution they are considering.

This page documents the certifications and white papers we know about for Linux-HA.

From IBM

Linux-HA on ServeRAID

Linux HA has been certified as ServerProven when used with the IBM ServeRAID hardware. This occurred during May 2004. IBM's Ellen Gardiner can provide more details on request.

Linux-HA on DRBD with DB2

  • DB2 has issued a statement of support for DB2 running on top of DRBD with Linux-HA providing HA services and control. IBM's Boris Bialek can provide more details on request.

  • IBM's IRES product (IBM Retail Environment for SUSE Linux) configures DB2 on top of DRBD and Linux-HA. IBM's Doug Rothert can provide more details on request.

  • IBM has written a white paper recommending Linux-HA and DRBD as an environment for providing highly-available DB2 services.

Linux-HA on DS4000 (FAStT) Storage Systems

  • Linux-HA is TotalStorage Proven when used with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, or SUSE/Novell SLES9 (this page refers to Linux-HA as "Linux HA").

  • Emageon (an IBM Storage reference customer), bases their product line on Linux-HA on FasTT hardware. As of June 2004, they have over 40 such production installations, and the whole configuration is FDA-approved and certified. They have a few different FasTT configurations which they test extensively before each release of their system.

  • IBM has written a white paper recommending DB2 and Linux-HA for telecommunications applications based on FasTT hardware. This paper is the result of prototyping and testing this configuration by IBM's software group.

Linux-HA with Websphere MQ Series

  • IBM has issued a statement of support for Websphere MQ Series running with Linux-HA providing HA services and control. IBM's Doug Rothert and Milton Hernandez can provide the details on this.
