I am evaluating pen to use it in a project where
we have 2 apache servers on red hat 7.1 and
i want to have a system that do:
-load balance, fault tolerance,
session persistence (http session).

i have some cuestions about pen:

- support it session persistence (i
suppose yes...)
- IMPORTANT: fault tolerance: in the doc you say:
"The final single point of failure, pen itself, can be eliminated by
running pen on several servers, using vrrp to decide which is active. "

what is vrrp?, can i achieve this with
only 2 servers.

thanks in advance.
