Understanding Server Clusters

Related information: http://iweb.com/dedicated-server/cluster

Clusters are usually deployed to improve performance and availability over that of a single computer, while typically being less costly than single computers of comparable speed or availability.

A server cluster uses several dedicated servers to do several different jobs, or to share the burden of one important task. A very common server cluster configuration is a web server cluster (or web cluster), which spreads internet traffic over several web servers using a load balancer. This creates a high-availability server with increased capacity and failover. Other benefits of server clusters include: 

  • Scalability and increased capacity on-demand
  • Improved performance
  • Enhanced Security

iWeb’s web cluster packages are perfect for both Linux and Windows hosting. The Linux web cluster supports Apache, PHP and Perl, while the Windows web cluster supports IIS, ASP and .Net. Clusters can also be customized to support a wide range of additional software. Contact our Sales department for more information: http://iweb.com/contact
