About Veritas Cluster Server

Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) from Symantec connects multiple, independent systems into a management framework for increased availability. Each system, or node, runs its own operating system and cooperates at the software level to form a cluster. VCS links commodity hardware with intelligent software to provide application failover and control. When a node or a monitored application fails, other nodes can take predefined actions to take over and bring up services elsewhere in the cluster.

VCS provides the following benefits:

  • Minimizes downtime.

  • Facilitates the consolidation and the failover of servers.

  • Effectively manages a wide range of applications in heterogeneous environments.

Before you install the product, read the Veritas Cluster Server Release Notes.

To install the product, follow the instructions in the Veritas Cluster Server Installation Guide.
