If your aplication support clustering, that is what you need. The OS is OK for clustering. So take a look on that and consider to implement.

I mean if your application agree to work in cluster and what kind of cluster (by ex: Exchange server work only in active/pasive cluster) So consult your aplication manufacture for that issue.

You can install the apps on both server using a network location as folder for apps. Then if your first server fall you can use the seccond server to host the apps in feew minutes.
Anyway is a litle dificult to find a solution if you don't specify the apps type.

No comment has been added to this question in more than 21 days, so it is now classified as abandoned.

I will leave the following recommendation for this question in the Cleanup Zone:
DELETE: No Refund

Any objections should be posted here in the next 4 days. After that time, the question will be closed.

Hey dan_blagut,

It's just my recommendation, I'm happy to review that if you disagree, that's why we ask for objections :)

The reason I went with "Delete - No Refund" in the end is because the author wasn't interested in trying for an answer involving clustering (whether a full-blown cluster or Network Load Balancing).

There didn't seem much value recommending the question is closed as accepted, although I'm sure had it continued you would have continued to help.

I'll support Dan with this - though in the future I would hope he'd object without sarcasm.

He said he didn't think the application supported clustering... still, you CAN cluster non-cluster support applications.  And outside of that, you would need the application to support some kind of fail-over and he didn't name the application.

Fair enough, I certainly appreciate that clustering could be used here, it was just a bit borderline (in my opinion). I'll happily change my recommendation to:

ACCEPT: dan_blagut {19166789}
