Last weekend, at an event in Portugal, the local user group showed a redundant OpenBSD firewall working with two soekrises and two laptops. They had one laptop playing an mp3 that was physically on the second laptop, being shared via NFS, and then simulated a failure on the firewall. A second machine claimed automatically the firewall identity on the network and the music playing just choked a bit and recovered nicely. Kind of what Ryan McBride did at EuroBSDCon but without the axe part! Anyway, it definitely was fun to watch and it is also a good reminder of an OpenBSD based solution that companies can implement under a low budget. Some photos are also available.
