In this GroupWise Advisor magazine article, Tay Kratzer explains how clustering will help you keep your GroupWise sytem running 24 hours a day.

Here's an excerpt:

"Did you get my e-mail?" How many times have you heard that phrase? E-mail has become the most critical application for all companies, government agencies, and educational institutions. An increase in the need for these organizations to provide e-mail 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year has led to a demand for clustering.

Clustering is simply a group of servers that share a centralized data store or Storage Area Network (SAN). These same servers work together as a "team," helping each other provide services for organizations. This "teamwork" benefits the organization in many ways. First, it lets the organization consolidate their many data centers and servers into one. This centralization and consolidation has a second benefit of easing the administration of geographically separated networks. The third benefit of clustering is the potential for 99.999 percent uptime for all network services including data, and especially e-mail.
