Avoid Email Interruptions with MDaemon Clustering

By Brad Wyro

If your business has ever suffered an email outage, then you know the importance of having some kind of backup plan if the mail server goes offline. To help protect against email downtime, MDaemon can be configured in a multi-node cluster.

All MDaemon servers in a cluster share a single set of mail folders, archives, and other key data. Load balancing hardware or software is then used to route mail to the secondary cluster node if the primary node goes down.

When multi-node mail routing is enabled, MDaemon’s mail queues can be shared as well, which helps prevent messages from being stuck in the mail queues if a server goes down. In instances of high email traffic, multi-node mail routing helps distribute messages across the cluster for faster email processing.

MDaemon’s cluster service helps ensure that email keeps flowing, and with email being such a critical component of business communication, having two or more clustered mail servers helps protect your business against missed opportunities or lost revenue due to communication interruptions.
