Techopedia explains Windows Clustering
Windows clustering includes three primary components:
- Server clustering: Maintains data integrity and provides failover support.
- Network load balancing (NLB): Addresses bottlenecks resulting from front-end Web services.
- Component load balancing (CLB): Addresses the unique scalability and availability needs of middle-tier applications.
Windows clustering guards against three types of failure: Application/service, system/hardware and site failures, which may result from power outages, connection failures or disasters.
