Design Consideration for active/active clustering RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I need help on the design consideration to develop a VB application to work in a Cluster (active/active). The application would consist of an NT service that will spawn activeX exe components based on a configuration.

    Thank you,

  • One main thing that you need to remember regarding Microsoft's clustering technology is that it based on a "shared nothing"  concept

    the meaning is that in an active/active configuration you'd need to partition the work between the two active servers and have each server act as a backup for the other one.

    Regarding other design consideration. you should probably provide some more details e.g. what are the fail-over times you need, how many cluster nodes, what application type are we taking about here etc.
