I am new to clustering, recently setup a clustered server with load balancing http server at the front. Failover works on servers inside the cluster but I am questioning what if the load balancing server failed. Anyone have the solution for better system availability ?
do you have separate load balancer hardware device for your implementation?or you are using OHS to loadbalance your applications?
as per my knowledge, Generally if loadbalaning server failed, you do't have any other option except to start the secondary datacenter(DR)

Yes we use Apache as load balancer, hence it would have chance of failure. We are thinking if any software/hardware could do better job to eliminate all possibility DoS.
