The Lujan Security Systems (Lujsansoft) is a provider of Linux-based badgereader systems.

We are using VNC so that a) the customers can access it from whatever kind of computer they are using and b) Comtrol rocket port serial hubs so we don't have to deal with the headaches associated with long streches of RS232 or RS485 cabling.

We are using heartbeat to run the badge reader program, the driver for the serial hubs and VNC and it all works beautifully. The installation where I installed my two node cluster is a linear accelerator in Los Alamos NM USA and the badge reader system MUST stay up while the "beam" is running, it is a matter of health and safety.

Setting up heartbeat was cake and pie (piece of cake, easy as pie) I can't believe how easy it is to set up and use. Oh yeah it works perfectly too.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service is a division of the US government whose mission is working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

We use heartbeat and rsync to set up a 2 unit HA cluster that is a Samba PDC for a 100 user network. Samba does not offer BDC capabilities at this time, so without your HA software, I would not have made the switch to open source. Thanks. The machines run RH 7.2 and Samba 2.2.2. They are old desktop reject machines, one of which had no available serial ports, so I stuck 3 nics in each of them. One for the network, and 2 for heartbeat/rsync.
