Many Internet services require high availability. Server pooling provides a high availability solution using redundant servers. If one server fails, the service is continued by another one. A challenge for server pooling is efficient state sharing: the new server requires the old one's state to continue service. This paper proposes a simple, efficient and scalable solution, usable for a large subset of applications.
