Active-Active Redundancy or High-availability
I would like to see active-active redundancy or at the very least a high-availability active-inactive feature in WHM/cPanel. Starting out with N+1 would be sufficient.
Several virtual platforms already offer this, and there are several SAN solutions that do as well. Unfortunately those solutions are cost prohibitive for shared hosting. The custom solutions that most hosts are using rely on custom support labor and often use unproven methods.
With today's SAN environments or direct connection it is possible to achieve the necessary throughput on the network with a heartbeat and sync channel to accomplish this feature request. I would think that this can be accomplished from cPanel's programming side as well because cPanel has implemented complex features in the past.
I believe this is a very serious matter and I would be willing to pay higher costs for this feature. I would also purchase more licenses from cPanel if this existed.
I have contacted cPanel support about this several times in the past but the response has always been that cPanel is not interested. cPanel tells me that the hosting community is not interested in this. So, I would like for everyone to vote on this so that we can get the ball rolling. Please show cPanel how important this is to the hosting community! Please comment and vote for this feature!
