Data center applications are becoming increasingly distributed and interdependent. The use of server virtualization for cost savings and simpler server provisioning is also adding another layer of complexity to IT infrastructures. The challenge for IT organizations now is to maintain the end-to-end availability of mission-critical applications in this complex, interconnected, and heterogeneous environment. Cluster Server One combines the core Cluster Server DNA, rich application awareness and control, with a flexible, and highly scalable architecture designed for virtual and scale-out environments. Cluster Server One increases application availability, maximizes cost effectiveness, and prepares IT managers to meet the rising challenges in managing data centers.
Enables applications to fail over from physical servers to virtual machines, virtual machines to physical servers or any other combination desired.
Ensures availability of mission-critical applications and enables server repurposing based on business priority in consolidated server environments.
Automated disaster recovery
Provides global disaster recovery by automating the recovery of applications at remote data centers.
Comprehensive environment support across heterogeneous platforms
Supports up to 256 nodes per cluster across multiple operating systems and virtualization platforms.
Increased operator efficiency
Controls thousands of applications running across scores of virtual and physical servers from a single console. Increases automation and reduces manual tasks and errors.
Multi-tier application support
Supports dependency relationships between applications and databases running across different operating systems and physical and virtual platforms. Automatically restarts the entire IT service in the event of a failure.
Role-based access control (RBAC)
Supports granular access privileges to ensure security and reduce operational errors.
