IBM e(logo)server xSeries Clustering Planning Guide

This redbook will help you to implement practical clustered systems using the IBM e(logo)server xSeries and Netfinity families of Intel-based servers. Clustering as a technology has been used for many years but has only recently started to become popular on Intel-based servers.

This is due, at least in part, to the inclusion of clustering technology in Windows NT 4.0 Enterprise Edition and now Windows 2000 Advanced Server and Windows 2000 Datacenter Server operating systems. After discussing the reasons why clustering has become such an important topic, we move on to specific clustering technologies.

Clustering comes in many forms. It can appear natively within an operating system, or it can be offered as an add-on product by either the operating system vendor itself or by third-party vendors. A third variation is clustering that is built into specific applications. Generally, these have been complex products such as relational databases.

By describing the characteristics and benefits of each approach, the book will help you to make informed decisions about the clustering solutions most appropriate for your applications.
