Does accessing SQL Server cluster node increase performance ?

Last Modified: 2015-03-27
I have developed a CRM application using .net and SQL server database.
This CRM database has attached to online CRM web application and online web reporting  application.
Also CRM database connected to more than 30 desktop application in the local computer  network.  The database has more than 30 GB size. Now my desktop users are reporting slowness in the application and when users accessing reporting model the application is very slow.
My SQL server configured in cluster node. So it has own virtual IP.  To overcome the slowness issue one of my SQL server  consultant suggest me to map the reporting application to cluster node. And he told me that it will work like a load balancing and your desktop application will work fine.

My questions is, if I  map the reporting application to the cluster IP , does it improve the performance ?
