Symantec Cluster File System

Symantec Storage Foundation Cluster File System is the cornerstone of a highly available environment, delivering faster recovery for business-critical applications with reduced complexity and costs. Compared to traditional single-instance file system implementations, Cluster File System significantly reduces application downtime and improves data access. Because multiple servers share the same storage resources, the length of time it takes to bring storage online is drastically reduced when an application fails. The high performance file system spans heterogeneous servers to provide concurrent access to data and enables faster failover of applications and databases, such as Oracle, SAP or Tibco.
