Designing and Deploying Server Clusters
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
Server clusters ensure that applications continue to run in the event of planned service downtime due to maintenance or during unplanned downtime due to hardware or network failure. In order to design server clusters, organizations need to understand the applications that they intend to host on a server cluster, namely the best way to deploy and configure the application in a clustering environment, and they also need to know the server cluster’s storage and capacity requirements.
