    Hello all,

    I've started looking into this issue, as this weekend was awful due to a hard drive failure on my server. We use 2x1.5 TB HDD in Software RAID 1 and 1 60 GB SSD drive for mysql. Having had to deal with quite a lot of downtime due to some "clumsy" technicians, I've been looking on how to avoid this issue in the future. So I would like to ask you for some advice.

    The server is running CloudLinux with cPanel. I'm looking for a cost effective method at the same time, as we all are :)

    Thanks for the help.

    Hello :)

    cPanel currently supports clustering for DNS purposes only. There is support to host your databases on a remote MySQL server, however beyond that, there are no native options that allow for mirroring of your websites. I recommend searching our forums for "mirroring" and "high availability" for custom solutions that other users may have implemented. There are lots of discussions about the best ways to do this. EX:

    Load Balancing Between 2 cPanel Servers
    Load Balancing
    Load Balancing Servers
    cPanel Load Balanced Servers

    Also, feel free to add your input to the following active feature requests:

    Active Redundancy or High Availability
    Build in Load Balancing

    Thank you.
