Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 SP1: Business Continuity Clustering with Novell Cluster Services (Advanced Technical Training) [Course 9505]

Course Overview

Novell's Business Continuity Clustering solution protects your key business systems against downtime and disaster. Built on Novell Cluster Services (NCS) and Novell Open Enterprise Server, Business Continuity Clustering automates the configuration and management of a high-availability clustered-server solution. In this course, we will cover Business Continuity Clustering as it is designed to provide site-to-site failover of critical workgroup and networking services. We will discuss how services running on Open Enterprise Server, either NetWare- or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server-kernels within a cluster, can easily fail over to another cluster in a completely different geographic location. This eliminates downtime, ensures critical services are available, mitigates compliance risk and minimizes the possibility of human error.
