Corosync - The Corosync Cluster Engine is a Group Communication System with additional features for implementing high availability within applications.
Following our first meeting in Berlin over exceptional German brewing, I recently had the opportunity to visit with Tom Masse of Meltwater.

Network Redux has been selected to host and maintain PublicAlerts.org, a website administered by the City of Portland on behalf of the region, including Clackamas, Clark, Columbia, Multnomah and Washington counties.
PublicAlerts.org provides information about emergencies and service disruptions involving roads and bridges, transit, public health, public safety, utilities, community services, schools, and weather. The site also allows residents to sign up to directly receive alerts when the community emergency notification system in their neighborhood is activated. In the event of a major Pacific Northwest disaster also affecting the Network Redux Seattle data center, the site would automatically transfer service capability to the company’s Washington, D.C., location, ensuring that critical news and alerts would continue to be available.
