Configuring Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 for High Availability of the Head Node
< Go Back
Cluster availability is a primary concern for many administrators; every outage, scheduled or unscheduled, results in lost productivity for your organization. By using a process called failover, clusters can be set up so that if the head node of the cluster becomes unavailable for any reason, a second server takes over as the head node; this allows jobs to continue to run and for new jobs to be submitted. This guide shows you how to configure your cluster using failover, maximizing the availability and productivity of your environment.
