Application Failover without 2008 Enterprise?

I'm just curious as to what the options are for setting up a 2-node failover cluster in Windows Server 2008 without having Enterprise edition? Even if it has to be third party apps? I did a quick google but I didn't find any solid information on specifics, and a lot of discontinued products.

Essentially I'd like to be able to do a restart on one server, without kicking anyone out of the one primary server application (the accounting software), by redirecting them to the other until the original comes back online.
