  As of my knowledge RedHat uses Piranha for the same purpose.

Yes, I know what HA and LVS do. LVS is what I want. I'm familiar with 
HA, but I don't know enough about LVS to know if RedHat Cluster Suite 
adds anything to it, or is simply re-branded.

And I do know enough about LVS to know that GFS is not required, 
depending on what apps you're clustering.
