Windows Server 2008 provides increased system availability to maximize system uptime and increase productivity. By actively monitoring the state of installed roles and displaying proactive data about potential failures, it helps IT Professionals reduce potential downtime. Failover Clustering as part of Windows Server 2008 provides new features that an organization can use to implement a High Availability strategy, making cluster servers a smart business choice for the enterprise. A new cluster creation wizard and management interface provides the IT professional with a simple interface to create, manage, and use clustered servers. New tools reduce cluster configuration setup and maintenance issues. By using the new Validate Tool in failover clusters, you can perform tests to determine whether your system, storage, and network configuration is suitable for a cluster. New functionality allows implementation in geographically dispersed environments, allowing the technology to adapt to the customer’s environment.
