Novell Cluster Services includes several important features to help you ensure and manage the availability of your network resources. These include:
Support for shared SCSI, iSCSI or Fibre Channel storage area networks.
Multinode all-active cluster (up to 32 nodes). Any NetWare server in the cluster can restart resources (applications, services, IP addresses, and volumes) from a failed server in the cluster.
Single point of administration through the browser-based Novell iManager or Novell Remote Manager, or a Java-based ConsoleOne® cluster configuration and monitoring GUI. Both NetWare Remote Manager and iManager also let you remotely manage your cluster.
The ability to tailor a cluster to the specific applications and hardware infrastructure that fit your organization.
Dynamic assignment and reassignment of server storage on an as-needed basis.
The ability to automatically notify administrators through e-mail of cluster events and cluster state changes.
