Clustering

In addition to providing flexible storage solutions that won’t make an IT department go over budget, new capabilities in clustering add benefits to help keep a business productive even in the event of a disaster.

Clustering is one of the best ways to provide failover and redundancy in an infrastructure. With clustering, multiple servers (nodes) are grouped together to improve performance through load balancing and allowing for failover, providing high availability (HA). Organizations often cluster mission-critical servers, such as those running databases or line-of-business applications. In a nutshell, clustering is a good solution for any server application where downtime or poor performance could severely impact business productivity and operations.
