Background

Ohloh project report for pacemaker

Pacemaker has been around since 2004 and is primarily a collaborative effort between Red Hat and Novell, however we also receive considerable help and support from the folks at LinBit and the community in general.

The core Pacemaker team is made up of full-time developers from Australia, USA, Austria, Germany, and China. Contributions to the code or documentation are always welcome.

Pacemaker ships with most modern enterprise distributions and has been deployed in many critical environments including Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH (DFS) which uses Pacemaker with Heartbeat to ensure its air traffic control systems are always available

Currently Andrew Beekhof is the project lead for Pacemaker.
