This is mostly related with databases applications :)

Single instance means:
If database app uses database and one node would fail then there is short outage because database is initialized on another node. Changes are executed only on active node with database

Multiple instance means:
If database app uses database and one node would fail then there is no outage because database is initialized on both nodes. Changes are executed on each database instance concurrently. So, resource is moved to another node where database contains the same data.

Hi Krzysztof,

                     Can u tell the example apps which works on single instances and multiple instances. Thanks in advance.
Krzysztof PytkoActive Directory EngineerCommented:
Yes of course,

any interface between SQL and Oracle databases. Application name does not matter because it is only program which uses databases.

Short example of apps which may be used as single and multi instances:

as you can see, everything running on SQL and Orcale may be used as single or mutli if license dos not prohibit that
