Summary: mirror/replicate block-devices across a network-connection: This is the user space tools to control, configure the DRBD driver, as well as integration programs and scripts that glues the DRBD system to cluster management software and other system components.
- Enable Xen integration
- Enable Pacemaker integration
- Enable Heartbeat integration
Drbd is basically a networked raid 1 for mirroring volumes.
Heartbeat is actively being deprecated, so users are encouraged to go with sys-cluster/corosync (package not on wiki - please add).
Pacemaker is a resource management agent that starts and stops services in case of failure on nodes.
