Within any business, a number of applications exist that are critical to the success of the business. As a result, these applications and the systems they run on require a higher level of availability. One of the most common methods used to increase the availability of a business-critical application in a physical environment is to deploy a traditional high availability clustering solution such as Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) or Microsoft Cluster Services (MSCS). These solutions protect against an unplanned failure of a component by providing the ability to restart an application or set of applications on additional servers in the cluster.
