Failover (BENS)

The failover system developed for the BENS server. It is based on the concept of 2 servers that work paralell in the network: One as the main server (master) and the other as a secondary server (slave). The master is permanently mirrored to the slave. If one of the servers fails, the administrator receives an e-mail message from the server that is still working. If the master fails, then the slave automatically takes over the IP address of the master and thus the productive operation.
