I was wondering how to achieive clustering of applications in vb.net. I need to make my applications cluster aware and i was looking for some documentation and more importantly a sample application on making cluster aware applications in vb.net. I could write .net remoting application where 2 applications talk to each other and if one is down the other can launch a process but i want to achieve this through clustering or network load balancing.
Thank You

Last week I saw an impressive presentation by Appistry.  http://www.appistry.com/
Presentation Info: http://www.denvervisualstudio.net/Messages/Updates2006/Update03202006.htm

Their technology allows running of many applications on 2 to 100's servers.  Any server(s) can be shut down (or fail) at any time, and the others will take over the load.

As I recall, it required only 2 or 3 lines of code to make a web service completely managed by appistry.  I'm sure they'd be happy to let you know exactly how to do it.

Note the chart comparing to fault-tolerant, clustering, and grid solutions at the bottom of page 2 of this doc.

I'm not sure this will help.  It does provide very simple, very effective scalability of applications.  If that's what you need, and not a specific clustering technology, then it will indeed help.
