Prioritising your Server Clusters Correctly

A cluster consists of a group of networked servers that are often called nodes. These nodes are able to run the  server content of any of the other servers in their cluster and are ready to take up the load should one or more of the other servers in the network fail because of hardware or software failure. Clustered computers are aware of their peers, continually monitor peer level performance and can make decisions when to take over from a server in the cluster when it is considered, thanks to pre-programmed algorithms, that intervention is required.



Direct Server Return is it for you?

Direct Server Return or DSR was introduced into the feature set of load balancers or Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) to deal with a particular potential problem. The core design concept of load balancers is to distribute traffic load across clustered CPUs, RAM, network infrastructure and discs in order to increase network reliability and performance while introducing the benefits of redundancy.
