The phrase “Clustering for mere mortals” was originally coined by the Elden Christensen, Senior Program Manager for Microsoft’s Windows Clustering and High Availability Team. Simplifying Failover Clustering in Windows Server 2008 was one of Microsoft’s main goals and I have to say that they really have made great strives to accomplishing their goal. I hope to provide some insight into this great product and give you some advice from the field as I work with customers deploying Windows clusters.
