This session will be an introduction to High Availability clustering, which is available in openSUSE and the SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension.
The talk will explain the basic concepts of high availability clustering, such as the Pacemaker Resource Manager, Corosync Cluster Engine, Resource Agents, Fencing Agents, and great acronyms like SBD (Storage Based Death) and STONITH (Shoot the other node in the head)
It will also give a very brief demonstration on how easy it is to setup a simple 2 node HA cluster on openSUSE 13.2 or Tumbleweed
