Can you get a guarantee against the single point of failure in your infrastructure? With clustering you can. Server clustering allows you to merge together several servers and set them up to work as one logical entity. Distribute the workload evenly or keep a set of back-up resources – should one node experience disruption of service the rest of the cluster takes over to perform the queued tasks.
Server clustering is included in your infrastructure blueprint when you need high availability guarantees on particular services or to protect against data loss of sensitive information. Ask our engineers about the possibility of node clustering if you cannot afford downtime of your internal operations or if the products you promote to your customers. Consider adding extra support when you expect high-traffic spikes.
Clustering unites a number of machines around the same tasks – whether they are optimized for heavy computations or for services where uptime is of utmost importance, you double the resources and reach new efficiency, capacity and/or security levels. An active-active relationship between the nodes supports your load balancing efforts. An active-passive relationship synchronizes the content and transactions between your nodes so one is, at all times, ready to substitute for the other.
