MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG is one of the most important subsidiary companies of the MAN AG. Our business is it to build trucks and busses, which are shipped to the whole world. IT services and infrastructure across the group are consolidated in our data processing centers.

This entry courtesy of Tobias Mucke who planned, installed, configured and documented this solution.

We are now running Heartbeat in conjunction with DRBD in production since the beginning of 2003. This stable solution, known from expierence, makes it possible to provide highly available services and to guarantee this fact to our customers in service level agreements. The Heartbeat cluster solution is one part of our three tier architecture, with a loadbalanced cluster in front and an Oracle DB at the backend. It provides the application server for our central document management system which powers the whole intranet of our enterprise. Besides that the HA environment consists of an NFS server and an administration tool called CfEngine. For each of these services we configured an own resource group with its own IP addresses, filesystems and so on.

Thanks to the Heartbeat team for this great piece of software and the support given through the mailing list. Keep it up!
