Server Clustering


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-20

To increase the availability of your Exchange data, consider implementing server clustering on your Exchange back-end servers. Although server clustering adds additional complexity to your messaging environment, it provides a number of advantages over using stand-alone (non-clustered) back-end servers. Although this section does discuss storage from a clustering perspective, the storage principles are applicable to Exchange organizations that used clustered back-end servers.

For information about the benefits of implementing server clustering on your back-end servers, see "Implementing a Server Clustering Solution" in System-Level Fault Tolerant Measures.
