Morning all,
 
this morning I'm asking, a hopefully trivial question, about making a system more robust, and the more I see from Erlang, the more I am impressed.
 
I have the following scenario, I have EXTERNAL clients, connecting to a specific IP and Port and an Erlang Server managing the connections and requests.  Unfortuanately the External clients are stupid and can NOT change the IP they connect to when that box fails.
 
Is there a way of creating a "virtual ip address" to which external clients can connect, but which is handled and failed over between / among erlang nodes as there are multiple nodes available for processing?
 
Or is the only solution a server cluster with hardware failover?
 
Regards
