We are starting a new project, and are trying to decide the best way to
proceed. We want to setup a LAMP configuration using Centos, something
we have been doing in the past with great success.
The question is load balancing. We antisipate the potential for the
system to receive 500,000 requests/ day with in the next year. We want
to plan for that extra load now as we start the project. What would you
suggest for setups for multiple servers for redundancy and load balancing?
I have setup MySQL replication and that works fine but what about the
rest of the system. I know it is quite simple to setup with windows
Would a cluster be the way to go? Ideally we would like 2-? severs
setup that are all identical and sharing the load as need be, and if one
fails users would notice nothing.
I have also thought of just looking for a hosting company that offers
load balancing servers and not worry about it but we like to have control.
Thanks for any suggestions
