There's not a single commercial software solution in our toolbox. We're
big fans of CentOS, LVS, heartbeat, ldirectord, tomcat, MySQL, Xen,
pureFTP, and more. We've been happy with the performance and reliability
of all of our FOSS tools. I'm definitely not a Kool-aid drinker when it
comes to commercial product marketing.

Fair enough, but I still found the warnings a little too scary. A more
complete explanation of the exact nature of the bugs and the exact
circumstances under which I should be concerned about triggering them
would have increased my comfort level.

We'll give it another look.
