Hi there,

you're defining carrier grade and data center Linuxes, and supposedly this
includes fail-over clusters. But at least I could not find anything that
goes beyond hardware- and data (path)-redundancy, althought software
problems are the most common source of trouble (and so software redundancy
is the most important solution).

How about two (or three) API-compatible systems based on various (redundant)
source codes which could be integrated into a really software-redundant
failover cluster? This would be a real benifit.

P.S.: Of course, complete software redundancy would also mean two different
kernels. But since there's (Free)BSD that shouldn't be a problem.
