Large enterprise companies have long used server clustering to increase performance and fault tolerance. Now more affordable, Sagacent Technologies can help small and mid-sized businesses strategically use multiple servers to get technological and business advantages: 

  • High availability—Adding redundancy to the network reduces single points of failure and offer far greater resiliency, business continuity, and fault tolerance. 
  • Load balancing—Sharing a workload across more than one device offers superior performance. 
  • Scalability—Your server needs can seamlessly grow along with your business. 

Server clustering protects against three different types of outages: 

  • System or hardware failure—These outages generally impact components such as central processing units (CPUs), adapters, memory, power supplies, and drives. 
  • Application or service failure—This type of outage impacts applications and services on the network that are critical to its operation. 
  • Site failure—These outages generally stem from things like natural disasters or when there is a widespread power outage. Site failures may impact multiple locations. 

Additional Benefits of Server Clustering 

Additional enhancements include: 

  • Capacity on demand—Servers can meet peak demand when necessary by reassigning resources based on workload changes.  
  • Parallel processing—This allows program instructions to be divided among multiple processors, reducing the total time necessary to complete the program. 
  • Systems management—Rather than managing multiple disparate servers, you can manage a cluster as a single system.
