    Hello
    I'm would like to know, is it possible to start cluster with Cpanel

    I would like to make next things

    ServerI - Cpanel (WHM)
    ServerII - WebUsers (Clients put here files)
    ServerIII - Mysql Server (Mail Server)
    Server IV - DNS1 and DNS2

    Is it possible to start it ? Do I need buy for each server license ?

    Thx you

    At this time, remote MySQL and DNS clustering are supported. Remote mail servers are not supported at this time. As for networked storage - while we do not natively support this at this time, many of our customers have reported success in using iSCSI for such implementations. The main issue with networked storage is maintaining quota enforcement. Traditional NFS/NAS tends not to properly handle quota enforcement.

    Note, pre-sales technical inquiries sent to sales@cpanel.net will receive swifter attention than posts to our community forums. Feel welcome to continue this conversation via email to sales@cpanel.net

    Do you see any plans for remote mail servers?

    We are presently using Hsphere, and the major advantage is the clustering of the servers. We would setup a cPanel cluster in a heartbeat if remote mail (to the web server) was available. I'm certain we would not be the only ones either.

    If you'd like a slice of disgruntled Parallels customers, put "remote mail servers" on your cPanel roadmap as a priority. ;-)

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Agreed. It's time for cPanel to start looking more into clustering, seriously.

    AFAIK, clustering has always been the biggest focus of the next major release - cPanel 12. It will certainly be a welcome development :)

    Looking forward to cPanel 12, I hope there are GUI improvements as well.

    cPanel 12 eta

    Sadly - while it sounds promising - we dont have a date for cPanel 12
    That date - or an expected date would be great.

    I remember 2 years ago being @ the cPanel event and hearing Windows was coming - then this past summer we met the Microsoft Guys -

    but... still not here.

    Please don't take this as a bashing - I more than understand cPanel wanting to hold off - fix what they found in beta etc... and I am proud to be using an organization's software that will not do irresponsible delivery of cruddy code...

    that being said - when should we expect 12 ? any hints ?

    remote servers ...

    Woops - thought I had included this as well.

    I agree w/ Rejected -Search is your friend... well almost...

    Ken from cPanel wrote a nice how-to for remote SQL
    http://www.cpanel.net/docs/seminar07/MySQL_Remote_Server.pdf

    I suggest reading it. In short - it makes life very easy

    ISCI for files is a great friend - I trust Google can steer you well there

    For remote Mail server - it is not an easy process @ present.

    REJECTED - any hints for the search ? I can see why someone asked again - when I searched I came up w/ tons asking how - but did not see the how-to...

    sure its in here ... but my searches yielded bubkis... :)
