Modern IT department facing immense challenge is to ensure the production Server availability at all times. To avoid downtime of Production Server, High availability Solution should be implemented like Microsoft Windows failover clustering. Microsoft failover Windows cluster provides the automatic failover to the standby node if a hardware (RAM, SMPS, CPU and etc...) failure or software failure (OS, SQL Server and etc...) occurs. Failover automatically occurs if the primary server fails. In this case, active/passive two node windows Cluster is implemented along with SQL Server cluster. Windows failover cluster will not failover for the customized application services which are node specific.
