Hi All,

I'm new to OpenASF. I'm searching around a solution for our enterprise application that is responsible to save(and manipulate) historical data of industrial devices. Now, we have two stations that works like hot redundant of each other. Our challenge is in case of failure. For now, our application is responsible to handling fault by synchronizing the files that changed during the fault, by itself. Our application is running on two totally independent machines (one as redundant) and so each one has its own disk.
We are searching around a solution like a "high available transparent file system" that makes the fault transparent to the application, so in case of fault, redundant machine still can access the files even the master machine is down (replica issue or such a thing).
It seems OpenASF doesn't have fail-over feature, am I right? My question is that can OpenASF help us in our case?
