This white paper discusses the steps to configure a server cluster using Windows Server 2003 and how to configure a failover cluster using Windows Server 2008. This white paper also discusses some of the major differences in clustering between Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008.

Windows Server 2008 clustering allows two or more servers to be linked together to improve system and data availability. High Availability server clusters are an important and effective technology. They significantly improve availability and performance beyond what is possible with a single server. One of StarWind's iSCSI SAN's, most typical configurations is a failover cluster, where two or more server nodes share external storage. Paired with StarWind's SAN solution, it allows you to create a shared virtual SAN that will present itself to the Microsoft Windows cluster. Server clustering can be combined with the StarWind Server iSCSI SAN to work with Microsoft SQL Server, MS Exchange, VMware ESX and other applications to deliver the highest level of reliability and availability.

If one of the cluster nodes fails, the reserved node automatically picks up the functionality of the failed server to accommodate the other applications without interrupting workflow. If you are seeking a reliable and powerful SAN for your Windows Server cluster, StarWind is the finest choice.
