Evaluating Failover Cluster Design Examples
Updated: October 24, 2008
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
The following design examples illustrate how you can use failover clustering to provide high availability for services and applications in your organization. You can use these topics to evaluate how the process of failover works across all of the failover clustering designs and to determine which design or combination of predefined failover clustering deployment goals best suits the goals of your organization.
Example, Clustered File or Print Server
Example, Clustered Instance of a Service or Application
Example, Failover Cluster in Which All Nodes Run Hyper-V
Example, Failover Cluster with Multiple Services and Applications
Example, Clustered Service or Application in a Multi-Site Failover Cluster
