2.3.  RHEA-2009:1383: ctdb

A new ctdb package is now available.
CTDB is a clustered database based on Samba's Trivial Database (TDB). The ctdb package is a cluster implementation used to store temporary data. If an application is already using TBD for temporary data storage, it can be very easily converted to be cluster-aware and use CTDB. (BZ#499241)


CTDB is included as a Technology Preview. Technology Preview features are included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux to provide the features with wide exposure, with the goal of supporting these features in a future release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Technology Preview features are not supported under Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 subscription services, and may not be functionally complete. Red Hat welcomes customer feedback and suggestions for Technology Previews. Advisories will be provided for high-severity security issues in Technology Preview features.
All users requiring CTDB should install these newly released packages, which add this enhancement.
