Hi Joe,

is it reasonable to just support the cards that do? (are they the common
cheap ones, eg tulip, eepro100)?

Yes and no. If you sum up the loss you have for a failed service for your e-commerce, banking, whatever project depending on the SLA all NICs are cheap. Trust me on that :)

And if you can't afford 'expensive' cards, I'm pretty sure you're not running LVS is business/productive environment and thus you also don't need keepalived.

I could be wrong on this one but I made the experience that buying cheap hardware doesn't pay off in the end. Only maybe if you're running a small company with no branches and 3-10 employees. You might do this.

YMMV. Cheers mate,
Roberto Nibali, ratz
