About clustering Enterprise Vault with Windows Server Failover Clustering

You can cluster Enterprise Vault in a Windows Server failover cluster to provide a high availability solution for Enterprise Vault. If you are setting up Enterprise Vault in an environment where Microsoft Exchange and SQL server are clustered, you may want to cluster Enterprise Vault to ensure that you can meet your service level agreements, recovery times, and recovery point objectives.

High availability is provided by creating an Enterprise Vault cluster server that can fail over between physical nodes in the cluster. When Enterprise Vault services are running on a cluster server they operate with virtual IP addresses, a virtual computer name, virtual Microsoft Message Queues, and highly available shared disks. When a failure occurs, the cluster software can move the cluster server's resources to a different physical node in the cluster.

To cluster Enterprise Vault in a failover cluster, you need a working knowledge of Windows Server Failover Clustering. See your Microsoft documentation for detailed information.
