  • The efficient running and profit making of most organizations are dependent on the AVAILABILITY of information. Planning for high availability and fault tolerance will help you to minimize the downtime experienced by end users and customers. Windows Server 2003 offers server clustering and Network Load Balancing, both of which can provide the high availability required by most enterprises.

  • While availability is important, SECURITY i.e. data access must be restricted only to those users that require access to the data. This requires that you consider protecting the data against unauthorized or illicit access. When addressing security concerns within your network design, your 3 primary concerns are the

  • Confidentiality, i.e., restricting access to the data

  • Data integrity, i.e., ensuring that the data has not been corrupted or altered in any way; and

  • Availability of your data to right users.


Fault Tolerance

  • Fault Tolerance specifically refers to the ability of a piece of hardware or software to withstand the failure of a key component.

  • This can be implemented at the hardware level using redundant power supplies or a Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) hard drive array. Clustering provides the ultimate in fault tolerance: completely redundant systems.

  • Lets study following aspect

  • Storage Level i.e. on HDD we can use RAID hard disk drive array

  • On Power level we can have Redundant SMPS on Server

  • On Server level we can have CLUSTER



  • A scalable network is one that can expand over time to address network growth and improve client response time. Server clustering can also be used to address scalability issues by allowing you to add nodes to a cluster when your network encounters a period of growth.

  • Scalability refers to how well a service or application can grow to meet client performance demands that will inevitably increase over time. It can refer to increasing system resources such as processors, memory, disk drives, and network adapters to an existing piece of hardware, or being able to replace existing hardware with more powerful equipment without causing network disruptions. It can also refer to adding new servers to meet increased demands.
