The Ultimate Goal

All clustering technologies aim to achieve one or more of the following:

  • Obtain the maximum affordable computational power.

  • Obtain faster program execution.

  • Deliver unstoppable services.

  • Avert points of failure.

  • Exact most effective utilization of resources.

A clustered file server ideally has the following properties:

  • All clients can connect transparently to any server.

  • A server can fail and clients are transparently reconnected to another server.

  • All servers serve out the same set of files.

  • All file changes are immediately seen on all servers.

    • Requires a distributed file system.

  • Infinite ability to scale by adding more servers or disks.
