Implementing Moodle 1.9 on a Microsoft Highly Available Environment

Standard

In this whitepaper you will be instructed on how to install a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Cluster, 2 Web Front End Servers running Moodle 1.9 which are network load balanced and the configuration to run Moodle from a remote storage area.

Following the 2 other whitepapers released back in April, I have written another based on how to install Moodle 1.9 on a Microsoft High Available Environment using Microsoft Cluster and load balancing services.

Microsoft have a set of products that are designed to stay online for the maximum amount of time they can by either having a standby servers or sharing the load with another server.

Microsoft Clustering allows for 1 server to be running the services, in this case SQL Server 2008 R2 and have a server on standby ready to pick up those services.  The network load balancing role in Windows Server 2008 R2 allows for multiple servers to share the load of the website running on this set of servers.
