Web server routing - help

By aadreja ·

I have two Web Servers connected through Wireless link. Also implemented replication between two servers.
I have been using ASP.NET & SQL Server 2000

I want to provide 99.99 % uptime
Both the servers should balance the load and provide consistent uptime.

If one server fails it should connect to another.

If wireless link fails, then individual server should take the load.

Both the servers should be access through same url e.g.

Please provide me suitable solution for the above problem.

Thanks in advance.

Use clustering

by PCSupportUK In reply to Web server routing - help

The easiest solution would be to make sure that the Windows OS on both servers is 2003 server enterprise edition, then configure the two as a cluster.
This way you create a virtual IP address, server name, shares and services that could be actually running on either physical server.

Or network load balancing

by PCSupportUK In reply to Use clustering

Using network load balancing NLB you create a virtual IP address on the second server and using MAC address spoofing the IP packets can route to either physical server (depending upon how you configure it).

Thanks alot for suggestion.

One more question.
As i mentioned two servers are at different location connected through wireless network.

Is it feasible to use Network Load balancing?
Is there any known problems using NLB, so that i can take care while implementing NLB

Thanks in advance.
