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:
Facilitates the consolidation and the failover of servers.
Effectively manages a wide range of applications in heterogeneous environments.
